Learn the basics of 2-color brioche in the round by beginning a lovely, reversible cowl. You’ll learn the basic brioche technique and how to avoid the confusion at the end of the round. This class gives you a foundation to many more advanced brioche projects! Technique Requirements: knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; working in the round
For this class you can either begin a cowl or do a smaller swatch with larger yarn and needles to learn the technique.
