Syncopation: 2 Color Syncopated Brioche

Michele Lee Bernstein

Thursday PM

Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and there are so many ways to play with it, once you understand the basic Brioche Rib stitch. We’ll review basic brioche rib, then practice syncopating (swapping dominant color with background color), and finally learn an increase and 2 decreases. Voilà, it’s a gauge swatch, and now we cast on for the real deal!

Skill level: Intermediate brioche. You should already be familiar with knitting brioche rib; this is not a beginning brioche class.

Material Fee: $4 for discounted Syncopation pattern


Student Supplies: Two contrasting colors fingering weight yarn, 100g or 4 oz each. 24 inch US 3 circular needle (you may need to go up to US 4 if your yarn is a heavier fingering weight). One stitch marker to mark syncopation point.

Homework: None
