The Road Less Traveled By Brioche Stole

Difficulty level: *** Intermediate

Free Shawl Knitting Pattern

Recently, I have been looking at combining brioche with more traditional types of knitting. This shawl is an example of that, interspersing bands of brioche stitch with 2-color garter stitch. When the shawl is laid out, it makes me think of the lines on a highway, flashing past as you drive over them. Robert Frost's poem came kind of naturally to mind and this became the Road Less Traveled By Stole.

The stole combines stripes of 2-color brioche with stripes of 2-color garter stitch. This sets up some interesting color effects. By playing with the color sequence in the garter stitch, the brioche stripes end up being knitted in contrasting colors to the garter stitch bands. The double knitting stripes along the brioche bands add a third dimension to the color effects.

The ends of the stole are decorated them with chevron-like edging.

To knit the stole, you have to be familiar with how to knit 2-color brioche and 2-color double knitting pattern, and know how to decrease and increase brioche stitches. I think this would be a good practice pattern for someone who recently learnt brioche.

Size: width - 12" (30 cm), length - 72" (180 cm)

Materials:

  • Kauni 8/2 Effektgarn 100% Wool fingering weight yarn 440 yd (400 m)/100g, color EY – 2 skeins (DC)
  • Kauni Wool 8/2 Solids fingering weight yarn, 660 yards (604 meters) /150 gr, color light grey – 2 skeins (LC)
  • Stitch markers

Needles:

  • US 2 (2.75 sm) circular needles. It is possible to use double-pointed needles, but even the 8” long dpns are not long enough to accommodate required number of stitches.
  • US 4 (3.5 mm) needles for cast on.

Gauge

22 sts/44 rows = 4" (10 cm) in garter stitch
22 sts/22 rows = 4" (10 cm) in brioche stitch
Note, that 1 row of brioche consists of 1 row of LC and 1 row of DC

Abbreviations

Please note that I use Nancy Marchant terminology for brioche stitch. I highly recommend her books Knitting Brioche: The Essential Guide to the Brioche Stitch and Knitting Fresh Brioche: Creating Two-Color Twists & Turns, as well as her lessons on craftsy.com.

  • Yf - yarn forward: bring the yarn to the front, between the tips of the needles.
  • Yb - yarn back: take the yarn to the back, between the tips of the needles.
  • sl1yof - slip 1, yarn over, yarn to front: with working yarn in front, slip the next stitch purlwise, then bring the yarn over the needle and the slipped stitch, then bring yarn back around to the front, ready to purl the following stitch.
  • yfsl1yo - yarn forward, slip 1, yarn over: bring the working yarn between the tips of the needles to front of work, slip the next stitch purlwise, then bring the yarn over the needle and the slipped stitch. Leave yarn in back, ready to knit the next stitch.
  • brk - brioche knit: knit the stitch together with its accompanying yarnover
  • brp - brioche purl: purl the stitch together with its accompanying yarnover
  • brkyobrk – brk1, yo, brk1: [brk1, yarn over (yarn over under needle, then over needle to back), brk1] in the same stitch. 2 stitches are increased.
  • brk4stinc - brk1, yo, brk1, yo, brk1 into the same stitch: 1 stitch increased to five.
  • br4stdec – this decrease is worked over 5 sts: 1st, 3rd and 5th are brk and 2nd and 4th are brp. Slip 1st and 2nd separately knitwise, place 3rd st on a stitch marker or cable needle, knit 4th st, pass 2nd st over, transfer st to left needle, pass 5th st over, transfer st to right needle, pass 1st st over, place 3rd st on left needle and transfer st on left needle, pass 3rd st over, transfer finished 4 st decrease to right needle. The 3rd st is a marked st.
  • brsssk (left slant 2-stitch decrease) – work to marked st, slip the next 2 sts (the marked st with its yarn over and the next single st) knitwise, one at a times, onto the right needle. Bark the following st, then pass the 2 slipped sts over.
  • brk2tog (right slant 2-stitch decrease) – work to 2 sts before the marked st. slip 2 sts knitwise (st with yarn over and single st) and knit (bark) them together. Return this st to the left needle and pass the marked st (st with yarn over) over. Move this st to the right needle.
  • LS – light side
  • DS – dark side
  • LC – light color
  • DC- dark color
  • pm – place marker
  • sm – slip marker
  • k – knit
  • p - purl
  • m 1 (Make 1 increase) - I used the increase described by Elizabeth Zismerman: Make a backward loop over the right-hand needle and in the next row knit (purl) it as a regular stitch.
  • wyif - with yarn in front
  • wyib - with yarn in the back
  • p2tog – purl 2 tog
  • ssk – slip the first st as if to knit, slip the next st the same way; transfer the sts back to the left needle and knit both sts together.
  • k2tog – knit 2 sts together

Two-Color Brioche Stitch

Please note that one brioche row consists of 2 rows, one worked in LC and the other in DC. Both colors are worked in one direction, then the work is turned and both colors are worked in the other direction.

Odd number of stitches
Set-up row (LC): k1, *sl1yof, p1, rep from *, end with sl1yof, p1. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Set-up row (DC): sl1, yb, *brk1, yfsl1yo, repeat from *, end with brk1, yb, sl last st. Turn.

Row 1 (LS, LC): k1, *yfsl1yo, brk1, repeat from * to last 2 sts, end with yfsl1yo, k1. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Two-Color Garter Stitch

Please note that since the garter stripes are worked alongside the brioche stripes, each row is worked in both LC and DC, similar to the brioche. Both colors are worked in one direction, then the work is turned and both colors are worked in the other direction.

Row 1 (LS LC): purl. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Row 1 (LS DC): knit. Turn.

Row 2 (DS LC): knit. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Row 2 (DS DC): purl. Turn.

Stole

The stole is worked in two-color brioche stitch and two-color garter stitch, alternating stripes. Although the stole is completely reversible, the light side of the stole is considered the right side (for this pattern).

With DC and larger needles cast on 95 st and purl one row. Divide stitches and place markers as follows:
4 sts – double knitting selvedge
19 sts – brioche stripe
15 sts – garter st stripe
19 sts – brioche stripe
15 sts – garter st stripe
19 sts – brioche stripe
4 sts – double knitting selvedge
