Basics of Brioche Knitting Portuguese Style with Andrea Wong
Portuguese Knitters are always interested in expanding their stitch library and knitting skills. After receiving so many requests, we have now this class that will show you how to work Brioche Knitting using Portuguese Style. The difference is to work with the yarn in front at all times instead of having it on the back of the work. This class is not intended to teach you Portuguese Knitting, but to improve the skill you already have. If you have not worked Brioche, that’s OK. We are going to go over all skills to make the adorable hat you see in the picture. Pattern will be given to you during class.

Using worsted weight yarn and US6 needles, cast on 20 stitches and work 6 rows of Garter stitch.
