Introduction to Brioche Knitting
In this 2 hour class you will learn the fundamentals of Brioche Knitting, which is a method used to create a beautifully reversible fabric that looks like two-colour ribbing. Brioche Knitting is known for its soft and squishy texture, and while it looks complicated, with a few tips and tricks, it can be extremely easy to work! Topics covered in this workshop include the Brioche Knit and Purl stitches, the proper way to work the slip-one yarn overs, reading a basic brioche pattern, and fixing the inevitable mistakes! The pattern provided in class will enable you to knit a basic scarf after class, in the yarn weight you prefer. For this scarf project, you will require 100g each of two highly contrasting colours of yarn in your chosen weight.
