BRIOCHE HAT or COWL with Sandra
Brioche knitting creates a richly textured, double-sided fabric that is unlike any other. It adds a unique 3-dimensional affect that can be worked into other garments, such as shawls to add intrigue, or stand on its own in a single garment. In this class, students will begin to explore the beauty of brioche by knitting both one and two colour brioche techniques into a cowl. Knitting will be in the round, with two different colours of yarn.
