The history of the brioche knit stitch is a little obscure, but a description of it appears as early as the mid-19th century in The Handbook of Needlework written by Francis Lambert in 1846. In this edition of her work, Miss Lambert details the technique of working brioche knitting and says that it is good to use for “sleeves, comforters, petticoats, night socks, linings for foot baskets, quilts, cradle covers and various other purposes.”
Miss Lambert then details how to knit “A Brioche” which is a puffed, stuffed tufted pillow of about 8 inches across and a few inches high and resembles “the well known french cake of that kind.”
