Intro to 2-Color Brioche in the Round
Saturday 9/26/2020 10:30am-12:30pm

Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and you can do it, too! Brioche knitting is easier in the round than flat, and even easier with two colors rather than one.

This class is an introduction to brioche for intermediate level knitters. We’ll learn basic brioche rib while knitting a simple headband, as well as how to fix common mistakes in brioche knitting.

There are so many ways to play with brioche once you understand the basic stitch. In this class we dive deeper, so you should already be familiar with working two-color brioche.

We’ll practice syncopating on your homework swatch (swapping dominant color with background color), and learn an increase and 2 decreases. Voilà, it’s a gauge swatch, and now we cast on for the real deal!
