In this class, we’ll build on your beginner brioche skills, to help you branch out into the world of brioche projects! Participants will learn brioche increase & decrease techniques, that add detail to an already stunning stitch. We’ll be knitting a practice swatch with multiple increases & decreases. If you’re feeling up to it we will also help you get started on a bigger brioche project of your choosing. We’ll touch on both English & Continental knitting styles in the class. This class is also well suited to those that need a little refresher or some guidance with knitting their brioche project.
Wednesdays, Mar. 20 & 27, 6-8pm

TECHNIQUES TO LEARN
Increases and decreases, understanding brioche patterns.
Sarah recommends a smooth fingering or dk weight yarn in 2 contrasting colours (not wooly/grippy/rustic), preferably a clear light and dark. Under 50g per colour is needed if only completing the swatch. Sarah will be doing her swatch in fingering weight yarn, using 3.25-3.75 mm needles according to her personal tension.
