    Brioche knit questions

    Hi. I was wondering if a person could make the brioche stitch into making socks and sweaters?

    What do you think?

    Jean Marie, The Brioche stitch is a knit stitch (1 by 1 rib stitch) It is used on the bottom of sweaters and sleeves. However there are other uses for it too.
