Have you long admired Brioche but haven’t taken the leap? Or have you worked Brioche for years, but have trouble reading your knitting, or fixing mistakes? Let Patty break it down in a way that makes it simple! We will start from the foundations of Brioche so we recognize what makes it different and how to read it. We’ll start by working through a one-color sampler to get comfortable with the motions. Next we’ll learn increases and decreases, and then kick it up to two colors. As always, Patty will teach Brioche for both Continental (picking), English (throwing) as well as what you need to do for Combination knitting. She’ll even demo it backwards just to get your mind swimming. By the time you finish class you’ll be ready to take on your first project. Want to learn more? Everyone in class will get a discount code to Patty’s video class that works through 4 Brioche patterns.
