In this three-part class, we’ll build on your basic brioche skills. Participants will learn syncopated brioche, simple increase & decrease techniques, & how to knit brioche in the round in the first class.
The second class will cover how to knit multiple increases & decreases, fix simple mistakes, use life lines, & read your knitting. We’ll be knitting a practice swatch with multiple increases & decreases.
In the third class, we’ll help you cast on a project of your choice & spend the class ensuring your brioche project is well underway.
We’ll cover 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.
