Missed this delightful photo of Roger Moore from my last post - it was tucked away at the back of Stitchcraft magazine so I didn't see it. He's modelling a "workman-like" brioche rib jumper, "for odd jobs in the garage and garden".
How times have changed. If I'd taken the time and effort to make a man a brioche rib jumper, and he then went and wore it while changing the oil on his car, I wouldn't let him back into the house. Even if he was Roger Moore. But here's this lovely pattern in Stitchcraft, just for men to use for messy jobs in the garage or garden.
To make brioche rib:
1st row: K1, * wool forward, slip 1 purlways, K1, repeat from * to last st, K1.
2nd row: K1, * wool forward, slip 1 purlways, K2 tog; repeat from * to last st, K1.
Second row forms brioche rib and is repeated throughout the jumper.
