Brioche knitting has been gaining popularity by leaps and bounds within the last few years. Hats, shawls and scarves are made gorgeous in this wonderful textured stitch. Not only does brioche lend wonderful texture, stretch and dimension to knits, but it can also be used to make two colour designs that are--gasp--reversible! In this class you will learn all the techniques involved in brioche knitting including reading brioche patterns, choosing a color palette, and tips for keeping your knitting on track. For the purposes of this class, we will focus on the two-color, in-the-round brioche technique. We'll have samples available for you to squish, so you can feel how using different weights of yarn changes the fabric you'll get too!
What's included: The yarn, (2 contrasting colors, see below for more details), and pattern is included in the price and will be available wound and ready to go upon arrival.
What to bring: NEEDLES AND NOTIONS - Two 16” circular needles: size 8 (5 mm) and size 6 (4 mm). You will also need a stitch marker, a tapestry needle (for binding off and weaving in the ends), and a crochet hook or "rescue" hook for fixing mistakes.
Students should be comfortable with casting on, knitting, purling, yarn overs, knitting in the round, and binding off.
