Enter a world where stitches bark and burp and even wear hoodies! Brioche is a fun knitting technique that creates an interwoven double layer of fabric that feels light and airy. It can be done with either one or two colors of yarn.
We'll learn this technique step-by-step and learn how to identify and fix mistakes. We will also explore some fun patterns available using 2-color brioche, and you'll take home a pattern for a whimsical coaster.
Instructor: Amy Wentley
Prerequisites: Adventurous Beginner. Students should be very comfortable knitting and purling. Experience working yarnovers would be helpful but not required.
Skills Learned: In this workshop you'll learn the brioche knit (BRK - that's the bark!) stitch and the brioche purl (BRP - that's the burp!) stitch to create a lovely two-color reversible fabric that creates an interesting 3D effect.
Materials Required: Two contrasting colors of worsted-weight wool yarn, appropriately-sized needles (US6 - US8), a crochet hook size F, G or H, stitch markers.
All class materials must be purchased from Warm n Fuzzy.
