What does sl1yo mean in knitting?

sl1yo (slip 1 yarn over): Before a brk (or a knit stitch): Bring the yarn to the front, between the needles, then slip the next stitch purlwise. Bring the yarn over the needle, to the back, ready to knit the next stitch (creates a yarn over traveling over a slipped stitch).

Does brioche knitting use more yarn?

Brioche works best on loose-fitting garments that require ease. Because brioche stitches create a very lofty fabric, it is advisable to go down a needle size or two when making brioche to somewhat control its ‘give’. Brioche knitting uses more yarn than, say, stockinette stitch – up to twice as much.
