Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and there are so many ways to play with it, once you understand the basic Brioche Rib stitch. In this online class held via Zoom, 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!
