The Diagonal Brioche Stitch

The Diagonal Brioche Knitting Stitch Pattern

About this Stitch Pattern

The diagonal brioche stitch creates a fabric with heavily textured diagonal ribs. This takes a traditional brioche fabric and creates a slanting version with a unique look. The fabric is still stretchy and maintains the fluffiness characteristic of brioche. It can be used in scarves, shawls, hats, and anything else that will benefit from diagonal lines this pattern creates.
