  • Kay and zinnias – what’s not to love!!

  • Gorgeous colors! Love that combo. Thank you for these links too, very helpful

  • The zoom was great! Love you both and thank you for doing it! Did a practice run last night of the broken brioche-casting on was the hardest for me to master. The brioche stitch pattern is really not all that hard. Will get on making a washcloth here shortly.

  • This is brilliant! I think ill cast on a swatch that will double as a dishcloth when I’m done. Great video. Thanks:)

  • That scarf is beautiful.

    • Did you cover adding in new yarn? Would love your take on hiding ends and where you add in?

      • Hi Jan, We didn’t talk about this, but my tip is simple: spit felt the new yarn onto the old yarn, and keep going! I ended up with only the starting and final ends to weave in, which I just wove in with a tapestry needle near the cast-on and bind-off edges.

        • Perfect solution! Thanks.

  • I feel like I sound bossy [your signal to reassure me that I sound lots of ways but none of them the least bit bossy]

    • Ummmmm

    • Not bossy in the least, just clear and direct. Exactly what those of us who are learning a new technique need, thank you!

    • Calm and deliberate. Perfect. Really!

  • I think bossy is good – but then I am a first born! Anyway, it helps if instructions are positively given. You can fudge after you get comfortable with the procedure, but we newbies need firm instruction.

  • Thank you so much for creating and sharing this technique video! For me, unfortunately, I cannot seem to translate what I’m seeing/hearing while a thrower knits into the correct moves in my picker’s hands. As I’m swatching, I’m often winding up a stitch off at the end of the row. If anyone knows of a good tutorial video for this pattern for we continental knitters, please share!

  • I just watched the Honeycomb tutorial… well done! I actually started my honeycomb scarf last month and got sidelined by a broken finger, but instructions in the FG are so clear and straightforward, I didn’t have much trouble. Watching the video was a good refresher while I wait to pick up my needles again.

    Only one complaint: the out-of-focus fade from one row to the next was a bit dizzying. Maybe a quick fade would be easier to watch? Or a fade in and out that doesn’t put everything out of focus … I don’t remember that blurry dizziness in the original (cushy cowl) video.

    Thanks for making it all look so easy. But I second the recommendation from EDIKEMAN to show the same stitches made by a continental knitter. Thanks!

  • When using two Freia Shawl balls of different colors, do you pull from the outside or inside of the balls?

  • Slight point of confusion for me in the tutorial video, row 1A. To me it looked like she was doing yarnover, slip; instead of slip, yarnover. Perhaps I will watch again to see if I missed something. Or else experiment on my dishcloth swatch to see which produces the appearance that I’m looking for.

    • Liz, this confused me too. I found a PDF from Andrea Mowry with helpful brioche hints that included the following: “ In brioche, the yarn is always held to the front before slipping a stitch.” if you do this just as part of standard brioche protocol, and then follow the spoken instructions in the video, it should make more sense. Here’s a link to the helpful hints’ PDF: https://theknitshow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/The-Knit-Show.pdf Good luck!

      • Question: I understand that you move the yarn to the front before sl1 (purlwise) yarnover but it looks like Kay is bringing the yarn to the front after the yarnover and knitting the next stitch with the yarn to the front instead of knitting with the yarn in the back? Is this right?
        (Note: I already frogged a good 4 inches of my scarf because it didn’t look like the photos!)
