So you’ve mastered two-color brioche rib. What next? Increases and decreases to create beautiful patterns in your brioche knitting!
Choose either the Deep End Hat , Deep End Cowl, or Madrona Cowl to learn these techniques. You’ll learn most of the increases and decreases on the first patterning round, and then have lots of relaxing brioche rib before the next increases and decreases. We will learn and practice double and quadruple increases, left- and right-leaning double decreases, and get an introduction to quadruple decreases. We’ll also learn more about reading your brioche knitting and fixing more mistakes.
