In Store Class 0923A: Introduction to Brioche - September 23 2023


An Introduction to Brioche Knitting

Date: Saturday September 23, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Learn to master two colour Brioche Knitting, by starting with a swatch.

In this class we’ll cover the three main stitches used in Brioche Knitting - BRK (or Bark), BRP (or Burp), and Sl1yo! Once you have mastered these techniques on a swatch, you’ll be ready to knit your first scarf or cowl, and you’ll be surprised how simple and rhythmic it truly is!

Our Group classes are suitable for ages 16 and up. For children under the age of 16, please contact the shop to book a private lesson on one of our class days.
