These socks are a gentle introduction to brioche in the round and basic brioche increases. The brioche blocks are checkered with striped blocks of Stockinette stitch, helping avoid brioche’s typical compressed row gauge. These socks are worked cuff down with a Fleegle heel and a wedge toe. The socks pictured above have had their colors reversed—this is optional. Check that brioche box off your knitting bucket list with a pair of Checkbox Socks!
