Syncopation is a brioche technique for switching foreground and background colors by switching knit and purl columns. The technique not only creates textural interest, it is also the basis for stunning graphic two-color brioche design elements on a garter stitch background. In this class, I’ll share the basics of the technique and then we’ll explore the design possibilities, so you can create your own syncopated brioche designs.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, basic brioche comfort
