This is a great introduction to brioche knitting and includes 2 different projects!
Class participants will first learn the beginning basics of brioche knitting while make a cute twisted headband (knit flat).
The second project is the Cushiest Cowl, a two-color brioche cowl designed by Nancy Marchant (knit in the round). The cowl will build on the skills learned with the headband, introducing brioche knitting with two colors in the round.
Students will learn:
- one and two colored brioche stitch
- brioche knitting both flat and in the round
- all the interesting abbreviations involved when knitting a brioche pattern!
