Textured cable

This pattern is a combination of brioche and cable stitches. If you like to knit both of these, try the following pattern.
Cast-on a multiple of 12 + 3 symmetry stitches + 2 edge stitches
Row 1: k1, *sl1yo, k1 rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Row 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26, 30, 34, 38, 42: sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo rep from *, brp1, sl1 wyif
Row 3, 7, 11, 15, 19, 23, 27, 31, 35, 39, 43: k1, *sl1yo, brp1 rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Row 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44: sl1 wyib *brk1, sl1yo rep from *, brk1, sl1 wyib
Row 5: k1, *sl1yo, brk1, sl1yo, c4f, [sl1yo, brk1] 3 times; rep from *, sl1yo, brk1, sl1yo, sl1 wyif  
Row 9: k1, *[sl1yo, brk1] 2 times, sl1yo, c4f, [sl1yo, brk1] 2 times; rep from *, sl1yo, brk1, sl1yo, sl1 wyif

Row 41: k1, *sl1yo, brk1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Repeat only rows 5 - 44 until you think the length is enough :)

Abbreviations:
k - knit
brk - brioche knit
brp - brioche purl
sl1yo - slip 1 with yarn over needle
sl1 wyib - slip 1 purlwise with yarn in back
sl1 wyif - slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front
c4f - cable 4 front

If you want to, you can watch the video tutorial for this pattern:
Or maybe you just need the chart:
If you want to knit this pattern in the round, you can use the next chart. Pay attention to the rounds 2, 3, 4, as they are different from the ones I show in the video. This is the difference from knitting flat. Also you don't have edge stitches, or symmetry stitches, only the repeat. Cast-on a multiple of 12 + 1 stitch for joining the round and start knitting :)

I’ve been perusing all of your brioche patterns, and find them all stunning! This particular one, textured cable interests me. Do you think it’s possible to do this in the round? I think it would be nice as a cowl. Any tips?

Thank you, Nancy!! See the chart above that I posted for you and anyone who wants to knit this pattern in the round. If there any questions please don't hesitate to ask. If you do knit a cowl and post it on Instagram, could you tag me @happyknitterpatterns, please. I would really like to see it. Thanks!

Thanks so much! Very helpful. Was that chart there all along and I just overlooked it? Silly me, if so. I’ll get around to doing these at some point. I’ll let you know, of course. I’m knitnglo on Ravelry. I’ve done tons of test knitting, it’s how I learned so many patterns and techniques. I only recently did some brioche test knitting and have fallen in love with this technique, so much less hassle than intarsia or stranded.

I made the chart and posted it after reading your comment :) You didn't overlook it. I added it because of you. I started to reply and then I thought that it would be easier for me to let you see the changes that you must do, in a chart.
