Hi, I noticed a previous conversation about Brioche rib, but I have a different question. My knitting dictionary shows a very interesting pattern that they call Staggered Brioche Rib.
I’m a beginning knitter, but this stitch is labeled “easy”. Unfortunately, I am doing something wrong and I can’t figure it out. I spent an hour on the internet searching for Staggered Brioche and found nothing, so I hope you don’t mind my asking such a detailed question in this forum.
Here are the instructions:
multiple of 2 sts + 1
Row 1: k1, * K1B, k1, rep from * to end
Row 2-4: Rep the first row
Row 5: k2, K1B * k1, K1B; rep from * to last 2 sts, k2
Row 6-8: Repeat row 5.
I’m still on rows 1-4. The way I am interpreting these instructions, each K1B in rows 2, 3 and 4, is going into a stitch that was also a K1B in the prior row. But I am not finding a new stitch to go into “below”. I find only the hole I went through before. Any idea what I’ve done wrong?
Also, the stitch I remove from the left needle after I K1B seems to turn into a hole. Is that what is supposed to happen? The picture in my dictionary doesn’t show any holes.
Thank you in advance for any light that you can shed on this!
