Learn how to knit a two-color brioche rib with this easy-to-follow knitting tutorial from Heidi Gustad. To work this knit stitch, grab two colors of yarn and either double pointed needles or circular needles. You'll be working with basic knitting stitches as well as some slip stitches and yarn overs in order to make your 2-color brioche ribbing come alive. If you've never tried this technique before, working in a dark and a light color can be helpful to help you see the mechanics of the knit stitches as you work them.
