Class Details:

Brioche Pastiche is a quick-start intro to brioche class. We begin with 2-color brioche rib in the round. Then it’s onward to a gentle introduction to brioche increases and decreases to form leafy patterns on a hat or cowl. We’ll also learn about reading your brioche knitting, charts, and fixing mistakes. The class pattern lets you choose your own adventure: Hat or cowl, plain rib or leafy increases and decreases, at your own pace.

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


Cast on and join to work in the round, then knit one rnd. (Stitch count for hat or cowl is in the pattern.)

Supplies for Class:

One light colored and one dark colored worsted weight yarn, 100 yards each (example: Malabrigo Worsted), 16 or 20" US 6 circular needle, stitch markers. A row counter is helpful, too. (You can use a 24” needle for cowl, but it may be tight, depending on your gauge.) Brioche Pastiche pattern: Use coupon code VKL2024 for 40% off pattern.
