Beginning Brioche with J C Briar
Brioche knitting creates cushy fabric suitable for comfy garments and all sorts of cozy accessories. Done in two colors, it creates vertical stripes, even though only one color is used at a time. Take this class to learn all the basics: working brioche rib in one or two colors; maintaining tidy selvedges; fixing mistakes; working pretty increases and decreases; and casting on and binding off effectively. You'll practice by knitting a small sample in class, but take away the skills needed to complete a lovely patterned scarf.
