The Stockinette Brioche Stitch is another easy and fast reversible stitch, perfect for beginners. It's closely related to the Brioche Stitch, but it has a slightly different look and feel - you can see the comparison between the two stitches in the images above.

The only thing you need to have in mind is that as with any brioche stitch, the fabric will consume a bit more yarn than usual.

Difficulty level: Easy

Instructions

You need a stitch number multiple of 2 + 1 + 2 edge stitches. Repeat the pattern between the arrows as many times as you like.

Work all rows as shown in the chart. Right side rows (1, 3 etc.) are worked from right to left, wrong side rows (2, 4 etc.) are worked from left to right. After finishing rows 1 and 2, repeat rows 3 and 4 until you've reached the desired length.
