Class - Brioche Pastiche Hat: Saturday, November 17, from 1:30-4:30pm; with Michele Description
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. We’ll learn the basic brioche rib, and then learn a simple increase and decreases to form the leaves on this hat. The crown of the hat is formed with one of these decreases, too. Yes, you can knit brioche!
