Brioche Knit

Ok so some brioche knit instructionals suggest starting with an even number of stitches while others suggest an odd number of stitches for the set up round - can someone clarify or just simply chime in on this.

Thanks all!

All of the patterns I’ve worked for brioche flat or in the round use an even number of sts. Are you looking at a pattern that perhaps has one selvedge stitch?

I was checking out a few tutorials and noticed some of the instructors started with even numbers while others started with odd numbers. I did my first brioche stitch sampler using an odd number of stitches. I haven’t really gotten my feet wet with this knit stitch but wanted to be sure before I got started with a project. Salmonmac you are a really great and appreciated help on this site. Thank you
