This is a one session class: Wednesday, August 28th, 5-7pm.

Level: Advanced beginner

Description: Become a fan of brioche family of stitches. This intriguing and unique knitting technique produces irresistible, soft, 3-dimentional and reversible fabric. In this class, you will learn basic brioche in one and two colors. You will have a bonus material to take home for a chance to try some other simple brioche stitches. Among the topics covered in this class are: selvage edges, special tips on cast on and bind off, best yarns to use, reading a chart and instructions for brioche. Samples will demonstrate how to use it all for hats, cowls, scarves, and more.

 

Prerequisites: Basic knitting skills.

Homework:

1. Practice the long-tail cast-on.               

2. With one circular needle and color A, CO 20 sts and leave them on needle.                            

3. Repeat instructions in #2 with color B and another needle.  We will use both cast-ons in class.            

Suggestion: In case you will need to start the swatch over, prepare another cast-on with the third needle (you can place sts on a holder, if you do not have an extra needle).   

 

Supplies: Worsted weight, solid-colored contrasting yarn. 2 skeins (one of each color) and US 8 (5.00 mm) or US 7 (4.50 mm), 24" (60 cm) circular needle.
