Introduction to Brioche Knitting


Are you ready to move beyond basic knit and purl patterns? Would you like to add a new set of skills to your arsenal? Are you curious about brioche stitch, which produces a lofty and soft fabric with lots of "give"? In this four-session class, we will learn the basics of one- and two-color brioche stitch. Sessions one and two will introduce students to one-color brioche stitch, and some of the simple increases and decreases used to create cables. Students will learn how to cast on for two-color brioche stitch worked both flat and in the round to create a cowl in sessions three and four. If you are comfortable with knit and purl stitch and would love to add texture to your knits, this is the class for you. *Required Text: Knitting Fresh Brioche by Nancy Marchant.
