Brioche Stitch Plaid with Xandy Peters
Brioche stitch and Intarsia color work can be best of friends. In fact, intarsia is easier with 2-color brioche than it is with stockinette or garter stitch!

We'll review 2-color brioche, then cast on a flat plaid swatch. Using a combination of stripes and intarsia, students will knit a double sided plaid fabric. In the second half of class, students will learn how to create their own plaid projects, how to work in the round, and how to add stitch patterns or shaping to a brioche intarsia project.

Note: Students must have a basic working understanding of Brioche to take this class.


Supplies
__2-5 colors of dk- or worsted-weight yarn
__Circular Needles in a US #6 (4mm)
__stitch markers
__a pencil and eraser
__2 different colored highlighters

Homework
Bring in something you’ve knit in 2-color brioche. A flat swatch works fine.
