Image of Hood

The Brioche Rib stitch of this hood transforms an otherwise simple project into a detailed accent piece. This hood combines the virtues of a hat and cowl into a single lovely accessory.

Hood

Lion Brand« Wool-Ease« Thick & Quick«

GAUGE:

9 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Brioche Rib with larger needle.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

k1b (knit 1 in row below). Insert tip of right needle through center of st 1 row below next st on left needle and knit the st, slipping the st above off the needle.
kfbf (knit into front, back and then into front again)
A double increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st again, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. Do not remove the st from the left hand needle. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Knit the same st once more, inserting needle through the front loop of the st. You will have created 3 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
4. Drop the st from your left hand needle - you have increased 2 sts.

Simple and easy. I would recommend adding different yarns.
