Brioche has an amazing squishable loveliness and this new pattern plays a bit with brioche by adding texture. Nancy Marchant has been developing a new set of stitches based on brioche but multi-coloured and textured. The Step Gable Tuck Stitch is a simple stitch pattern to work, but does it ever deliver! I added a full-colour photo tutorial to the pattern so if you’ve never done brioche stitch before you can leap right in with this version.

I love that it’s unisex. I knit a lot for the men in my life and it’s nice to have a pattern that works for everyone, although that probably means I’m never going to be able to find these to wear…
