The Plan

Update 2017. While we hoped we could revive this project it has not happened. If anyone is interested in taking over, please leave a comment.

Knit lots of hats and scarves for patients and survivors or breast and ovarian cancers to be donated to the Komen Foundation for the Cure, Philadelphia Affiliate. We fully support monetary fund raising efforts for the cure. But we also want to do something which will go directly to those who need to know there are people rooting for their health and survival. All skill levels are welcome!

Please join us! The 2011 project ends Sept. 15th.

Brioche!!! Yum...

Brioche is a sweet French bread, but it is also a deep ribbing stitch. And since we just did yarn overs & slipped stitches, which this ribbing uses, I thought this would be an easy and fun pattern for this week.

These instructions come from Barbara G. Walker's "A Treasury of Knitting Patterns".

If you are adding a boarder between each sampler, knit your garter stitch at this time.

Row 1: (preparation row)
K4, (Yarn over, slip 1, knit 1) - Repeat ( ) until you come to the last 4 stitches then K4.

Row 2:
K4, (Yo, sl 1, k2 together) - Repeat ( ) until you come to the last 4 stitches then K4.

Row 3 and beyond:
Repeat Row 2 only until the Brioche is 4 inches.
