Workshop: Intro to Brioche

Thursday, October 15 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
or
Sunday, October 18 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Brioche knitting projects are everywhere! Seize the day and learn how to knit 2-color brioche, in the round to create a reversible, bulky cowl. The brioche stitch produces a lofty, ridged fabric that resembles the (knit 1, purl 1) rib stitch. It is fluffy and luxurious!

In this class, you will learn all the basic techniques involved in brioche knitting in the round including how to read a brioche pattern, how to count rows, how to count stitches, and how to identify and fix common mistakes.

Pam Grushkin will teach you the techniques used in this pattern, including sideways shawl construction, mosaic knitting, I-cord edging, I-cord bind off, increasing, decreasing, slipping stitches, and changing colors.

To make the most of class time, please knit a swatch and discuss it with the teacher before class, so she can make needle adjustments as needed.
