This class will take you from beginner to expert brioche knitter. You will not only fall in love with the uniquely soft and versatile brioche stitch, but also learn everything you need to master this technique so you can get started on all the brioche patterns you’ve been admiring.
The class covers both one- and two-color brioche as well as increase and decrease. We’ll also get to know the abbreviations and chart symbols used in patterns, learn how to count, measure and block brioche. Through knitting a swatch you will get hands on experience and find out how increases and decreases can be used not only to shape the fabric, but also to create graphic patterns.
Skill Level: Adventurous knitters with no/little brioche experience or knitters with basic brioche comfort interested in increases/ decreases.
Materials: Two colours of yarn and circular needles or 2 DPNs (heavier weight yarn in highly contrasting semisolid colorways preferred), 2 stitch markers, 1 locking stitch marker.
