Brioche Stitch - Single Color in the Round

Our Brioche Hats use the single color in the round brioche stitch.  The terminology in the pattern may be confusing if you haven't done this stitch before.  Follow the pictorial below for an easy introduction to this fun technique!

INSTRUCTIONS SAY:  *P1, S1YO*

This translates to Purl 1 stitch, slip the next stitch as if to purl, then yarn over.

In this photo you can see I've purled the stitch on the right hand needle.

Now, bring the working yarn over the TOP of the right hand needle, then behind to the front.  This creates the yarn over.

    Thanks for these very detailed instructions. Sounds fascinating to do. ’Twould be easier to follow if the yarn in your sample were of a lighter color so that the stitch detail could be seen more easily.
