Nancy’s book, Knitting Fresh Brioche, takes brioche knitting to a new level. Learn how to work two-color brioche, then add increases and decreases to create graceful undulating motifs like those featured in the book. How to design your own scarf, what yarns to use, and creating your own variations from these new motifs will also be part of the class.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off; increase/decrease; chart reading; students need to be familiar with working the brioche stitch.
Supplies for Class:
For practice, 3–4 colors worsted- or DK-weight plain wool or cotton yarn, double-pointed or circular US 6/4mm needles. If you already plan on making a scarf, bring the yarn and needles you want to use to discuss possibilities.
