Brioche knitting uses a simple and clever technique to create beautiful fabrics, deep ribs and fascinating colourwork. It’s particularly effective in two colours, and is an excellent way to tame a busy variegated yarn. This class covers the skills for working brioche patterns, including reading the sometimes-complicated instructions, and fixing mistakes. Knitters will leave with a one-of-a-kind shawl or scarf project well underway.
