Brioche Knitting Basics (2 Weeks)
Wednesdays, March 22 & 29 • 6-8pm • $60
Teachers: Lynn Garrett & Elizabeth Mamantov
Have you ever admired a beautiful, colorful, textural brioche pattern but thought that you couldn’t make it? This class can help! Have you never heard of brioche but want to learn a fun and addictive new knitting technique? Come learn with us! In this class, we will teach you the basics of the brioche stitch and help you get started with your first brioche project. You will learn one-color and two-color brioche, which the instructors will demonstrate in both Continental (picking) and English (throwing) knitting styles. Once you have made some practice swatches, we will help you start a simple brioche cowl in one or two colors, using a provided pattern.
