How To Knit Honeycomb Brioche - The EASY way!

Nomad Jacket is one of my most popular knitting patterns, and the stitch pattern it's worked in is called Honeycomb Brioche. It's a very complex looking stitch pattern that creates these honeycomb-like shapes all over the fabric - however it's fairly simple to work up once you get the hang of it, and I often argue that it's kinda like garter stitch with a twist.


The stitch pattern can be worked over either an even or odd number of stitches, but in the video and in this blog post the instructions are described for working across an even number of stitches


Honeycomb Brioche always starts off with a set-up row, which is simply knitting across, and then it's a four-row-repeat, which means that you work the same four rows over and over again to create the stitch pattern. I like to work a selvedge stitch (selv) at the beginning and end of every row, and my preferred way is to always knit the selvedge stitch.



Honecycomb Brioche:

Cast on an even number of stitches.

Set-up row (WS): Knit until the end of the row.

Row 1 (RS): Selv, *k1b, k1* repeat *-* until the last st, selv.

Row 2 (WS): Selv, *k1, knit the next st together with the strand/loop created by working into the st below on the previous row* repeat *-* until the last st, selv.

Row 3 (RS): Selv, *k1, k1b* repeat *-* until the last st, selv.

Row 4 (WS): Selv, *k1, knit the next st together with the strand/loop created by working into the

st below on the previous row* repeat *-*until the last st, selv.

Repeat Row 1-4 until your work is to your desired length.
