Description: Brioche stitch is a beautiful, ancient knitting stitch with loads of variation. With this technique, alternate stitches are slipped every other row, creating a very soft, stretchy, thick, fluffy fabric. Classic brioche stitch is reversible, with both a lovely right side and wrong side. It can be done in 1 color, 2 colors, or 3 or more colors, and has loads of variations and creative possibilities.

This is a great class for learning the basis of brioche knitting, which creates a beautiful vertical stripe, a thick, cushy fabric (especially useful for a fingering weight yarn), and a great, useful basis for cowls, hats, scarves and more! 

After a brief review of the brioche stitch worked flat, we will move on to 2 color brioche in the round, which is a great way to learn and create something unique.

Students will receive handouts and Valin brioche cowl pattern by Marlene Berghout.

Skill Level: Need to know how to knit & purl, yarnover, and knit in the round.

Homework: Using a 16” size 8 circular needle, using the long tail or German twisted cast-on method, please cast on 90 stitches and join to work in the round. Place marker at end of round;  work 1 round in knit, 1 round in purl. Change to size 6 or 7 16” circular needle & knit 1 round. You will have 3 worked rounds plus cast on round. 

Tools Needed: DK or worsted weight yarn in 2 contrasting colors (1 handpaint or variegated yarn is fine, with a contrasting solid or tonal; no black, please); 16" circular needle, size 6, 8; stitch markers. Usual set of notions.

Materials Fee: None
