Once you get the hang of it – there’s just two rows to alternate – it’s goes pretty smoothly. Somewhat slower than normal knitting but you get into a rhythm, and it’s not that complicated.
But. The pattern I’d chosen had leaves made with different increases and decreases – in brioche! Trying to wrap my head (and needles) around K5tog in brioche was, um, challenging to say the least.
On Ravelry: Rust on Leaves

Mods: Completely missed the part where it said to work K1, P1 ribbing before starting brioche stitch. Whoops! :D
