Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and you can do it, too! Brioche knitting is easier in the round than flat, and even easier with two colors rather than one. We’ll learn basic brioche rib while knitting a simple headband or cowl. We’ll also learn how to fix common mistakes in brioche knitting.
Level of Experience: Intermediate. Skills required – knit/purl, cast on/bind off, working in the round.
Homework: With dark color yarn, loosely cast on 72 sts (90 sts for cowl) using long tail cast on. Join to work in the round, then knit 1 round. Bring yarn to front and leave it hanging there. This class features the Petite Brioche pattern, which can be downloaded free from PDXKnitterati here.
Materials and Supplies Needed for Class: One light colored and one dark colored heavy worsted to Aran weight yarn, 100 yards each (example: Malabrigo Worsted), and 16 inch US 6 circular needle (no magic loop or dpns for first time brioche, please), one stitch marker for beginning of round.
Materials fee: None.
Cost: $30 for members ($55 for non-members which includes Guild membership through 2021)
Class size: 20
