Lesley Anne Robinson – Workshop 1

Wednesday, April 5 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Textural Brioche

Look at knitting a bit differently by exploring different textures created by brioche techniques! In this class, we will dive into several distinct stitch patterns using one, two, and even three color brioche knitting. Together we will look at color choices, and cast on a swatch to practice these new stitches. Consider this a special workshop to broaden your brioche horizons!

Type of Class: Skill building hands on

Prerequisites: Knowledge of brioche stitches knit flat

Class Skill Level: Intermediate – Advanced. Previous brioche knowledge recommended.

Homework: None.
