Well, it took me forever, but I finally figured out regular brioche. The videos were ZERO help, I could only “get it” by reading the instructions, yo s1 k2tog. I not only knit continental, I also reverse the stitches so that you go straight into the stitch to knit (and purl by coming forward from the backside!). Also I wrap clockways, not counterclock, as most do. (In other words, I don’t “pick”, I more or less just hook the yarn with the tip of the needle off my index finger.)
So all my stitches are backwards. (Don’t knock it 'til you’ve tried it, it makes almost everything, including regular brioche easier). But 2 color has me baffled for now. If I can do it English style, then I can translate to my way on my own. But those videos simply do not help. I need written instructions for this.
From just thinking on my own, I’m guessing you work one color as for regular brioche. Then instead of knitting back on a flat piece, you pick up the other color from the same side as you started the 1st color from, and purl the stitch you slipped & yo together on the 1st row. In the round, would you knit one round 1 color, then 2nd round 2nd color, purling as above instead of knitting?
Any help would be appreciated. If you can point me to written instructions, I’ll be fine.
