What is the difference between brioche and Fishermans rib?
The short version is that Fisherman’s Rib is typically made by working into the stitch in the row below, while Brioche is worked with a combination of yarn overs and decreases.
Does brioche stitch use more yarn?
Brioche works best on loose-fitting garments that require ease. … Brioche knitting uses more yarn than, say, stockinette stitch – up to twice as much. I generally work with yarns that have a “bite” such as 100% non-superwash wool.
