Your question: Does brioche knitting use more yarn?

Does tighter knitting use more yarn?

In the real world

If your gauge is tighter than it should be then your item will be smaller and you’ll use less yarn (the problem that Lisa had). If your gauge is tighter than it should be and the pattern tells you to knit until you reach a specific size, then you’ll use more yarn.

Is brioche reversible?

Brioche knitting creates a cushy reversible ribbed fabric. This comes about by working one stitch and slipping the next.

Why is it called brioche?

Brioche is a French bread, which is made from yeast dough and enriched with butter and eggs. The word brioche is derived from a verb “brier”, which is derived from northern French word “broyer” which means to knead. Etymologists believe that the word broyer was loaned from German word “brehhan” which meant break.

What can I use if I don’t have the right size knitting needles?

If you substitute one knitting needle size for another, you will change your gauge. A smaller needle will result in more stitches per inch, and a larger needle will give you more. Substituting one needle size for another is the primary method of adjusting your gauge to meet the stated gauge.

What happens if you use knitting needles that are too big?

The real way to change the number of stitches that you knit in an inch is to change the needles that you’re using. A needle with a smaller diameter means that you make smaller loops when you wrap the yarn, and therefore you get smaller stitches. Likewise, bigger needles make bigger stitches.
