Brioche rib

You can enter the brioche stitch world with this simple rib: no increases/decreases, only brioche knit and brioche purl.

Cast-on an odd number of stitches
Row 1 (right side color A): k1, *sl1yo, k1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif. Slide stitches to other end of needle.
Row 2 (right side, color B): sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo;rep from *, brp1, sl1 wyif. Turn work.

Row 5 (right side, color A): k1, *sl1yo, brk1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif. Slide stitches to other end of needle.
Row 6 (right side, color B): sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo; rep from *, brp1, sl1 wyif. Turn work.
