Looking for a ribbed pattern for making a warm scarf or hat? Try the Brioche Stitch. You can learn how to work on this stitch from the step by step instructions given in this article.

Cast on an even number of stitches.
(Given the elasticity of brioche, you should cast on and bind off very loosely)
Set up row: * Yf sl 1 yo, k1; repeat from * to end.
Pattern Row: * Yf sl 1 yo, brk 1; repeat from * to end.
Repeat Pattern Row until you have reached your desired length.

Knitting abbreviations:
- YF SL YO: Yarn forward, slip stitch yarn over.
Bring working yarn to front under the needle, slip 1 stitch purlwise, bring working yarn over top of needle to the back. This produces a yarn over that crosses over the slipped stitch.
- BRK: Brioche knit.
Knit the stitch that was slipped in the previous row together with its yarn over. Because the yarn over wasn't counted as a separate stitch on the previous row, no real decrease is made.
