An Introduction to Brioche Knitting

Date: Saturday October 1, 10:00am - 12:00noon

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!
