Class Details:

In this class, we will be going over the basic stitches of One-Color Brioche, then move on to exciting Two-Color Brioche, all knit in the round. One-Color Brioche is a great way to teach your hands the muscle memory of the technique without the complications of two different yarns, and is a fantastic introduction to Two-Color Brioche. Two-color brioche is very fun, and can be easier to see the anatomy of brioche stitches, so we will be focusing on this for the remainder of the class. Yarn choices and color will be briefly discussed. You will learn my favorite cast-on and bind-off techniques to use with brioche knitting, the basic brioche setup, and work on something you could take home to keep practicing!

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, working in the round

Homework:

None

Supplies for Class:

2 balls of yarn in high contrasting colors, whatever weight you are most comfortable with. I recommend DK or worsted weight, around 200 yards / 183 m each. Leftover balls are fine. 16” / 40.5 cm long US 5–7 (3.75–4.5 mm) circular needles or DPNs, whatever you prefer using for working in the round.
