Frequent question: What is half fisherman’s rib in knitting?

What is the difference between fisherman’s rib and brioche stitch?

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 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.
