Mens fall knitting retreat

This is a cut and paste from ravelry. Not sophisticated enough to figure out the linking, but if you are interested there is a blog section on ravelry to get all the vitals and sign up

first beaded project

i used Kevat (spring in Finnish, or so i'm told) pattern
qiviuk 56 gr
on size 7
decided to make a st st section in middle both for more structure but also so it wasn't so bead heavy

some alterations on the pattern section, changed the purl to seed stitch and lowered the pattern section to match the arm pattern and fall below instead of right on the nipples

Brioche stitch

All the examples I see of brioche seem like di weight or heavier. Has anyone ever used finger or lace weight so its airier

Pattern writing question

I am writing pattern for stretchy tank top. The stitch pattern is four rows: one is all yo, k, the even rows are all purl back, third row is all skp.

Feeling dumb

Trying to work out simple lace pattern. It's k1yo first row. Coming back you skp slipping the knit stitch and knitting the yo so I get that it alternates. What I don't get is the beginning or rows so it doesn't create diagonal edge. Every row can't start with k1 yo, right? Then what does that mean about last stitches. I am sure this is. Simple solution.
