Brioche Rosetta Stone with Jolie A. Elder
It seems brioche is having a moment, especially in the work of Stephen West or Nancy Marchant. Do the directions look like Greek to you? How do I 'bark' or 'burp' in knitting? What does it mean to work the right-side twice without turning? What's knitting in the stitch below? Students will leave ready to work brioche patterns regardless of how they are described.
__Knitting Basics: Sharp scissors, Notebook, Pen or pencil with eraser, Stitch markers, Tapestry needles (large and small), Tape measure, Small calculator, Needles and crochet hooks of various sizes
__class yarn (smooth, non-splitting, light or bright or medium color) in at least 2 contrasting colors
__long dpns or circular needles to work that yarn (you need tips at both ends — regular knitting pins will not work) one size smaller than what you would usually use to work this yarn
__another needle a size larger than what you would usually use (just for casting on)
Note: As this is an awkward technique at first, I’ll be asking everyone to knit simultaneously and please wait for everyone to catch up before going on to the next row. If waiting makes you twitchy, please bring some “tv knitting” you can pick up and put down.
