Introduction to Brioche Headband with Ute

Brioche knitting is a distinctive knitted ribbing technique that is recognized by its heightened, doughy texture.  It creates a second layer of fabric, resembling an array of arches or (seen upside down) of fish scales.

This headband is a perfect introductory project if you want to learn brioche.  The cozy headband is done with the knit brioche stitch only, no purling involved. We will also learn how to cast on provisionally and how to perform a three needle bind off.
