Easy Brioche Stitch!
I’d been tempted to try this waffley, tweedish stitch for a while but could never make sense of the way the pattern was written.
Example patterns include exhaustive, but v. complicated abbreviations, and overly descriptive ones from an ancient ‘mon tricot’ (although this is let off, as it has an extremely helpful picture of double stitch / knit 1 below / K1B, and *900* stitches to peruse!).
Yesterday however, I found a Finnish website explaining how an Italian pattern made sense of it all, in a much easier fashion.. hooray for international knitting blogs! :)
