*brLsl dec* Brioche Left Slant Decrease (brkLsl dec)


Brioche left slant decrease (brLsl dec or brkLsl dec) is the easiest of the brioche decreases. It can be done in less steps than the brioche right slant decrease.

It is worked on 3 stitches:
- on the sides there are two knit stitches in main color yarn, with yarn overs in contrast color
- and between these two there is a purl stitch in contrast color.

So, working on these 3 brioche stitches, the left slant decrease can be done in 3 simple steps:
1) slip knitwise the first brioche stitch (in brioche knitting the stitch and the yarn over from the previous row are considered as one stitch)
2) knit together the second and third stitch (with its yarn over)
3) pass the slipped stitch over

Yarn:

1) Malabrigo Rios color 872 Purpuras
2) Malabrigo Worsted color 247 Whale’s Road

Needles:

4.5mm - US 7 Chiaogoo 5” interchangeable needles with 14” cable
