Frequently knitters are intimidated by Brioche knitting. I'm a big believer in learning new techniques step-by-step. This 2 part set of Brioche classes can work either separately or together. If you are brand new to Brioche then start with the first basic lesson and add the second class if you want to take your skills further. If however you've already got the basics then jump right in to the advanced class!
This is the first step into Brioche knitting and we will start at the very beginning. In this class you will learn some stretchy cast-ons for Brioche and how to work the basic Brioche stitch. Once you've mastered this we'll move on to introduce a second colour and the best way to bind-off in Brioche so that it has plenty of stretch.
Once you've mastered the basics you are now ready to move on to a new set of Brioche techniques. In this class we'll introduce Brioche in the round, increases, decreases and a little bit of Brioche lace. Plus we can take a look at correcting some of the more common mistakes in Brioche knitting.
Tools Needed: 2 colours of DK weight yarn or similar with suitable needle size (circular or double pointed), lockable stitch marker or safety pin.
