Next Steps in Brioche with JC Briar
Maybe you've done one or two simple brioche projects, enough to know you like knitting brioche. What's next? Take this class to expand your options: See what's involved in knitting two-color brioche flat. (Hint: it's a four-row pattern!) Add patterning via increases and decreases. Try a super-slick I-cord selvedge. You'll practice by knitting a small sample in class, but take away the skills needed to complete a lovely patterned scarf.
Note: Prior experience working brioche rib is required. Completing the homework assignment before class is an excellent way to ensure you have the requisite skills and experience..
_Smooth, plain, worsted-weight yarn in two solid colors
_one circular needle or a pair of dpns (NOT straights), 4mm/US 6
_Crochet hook, roughly size G
_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
Using one solid-color yarn, cast on 14 sts loosely.
Continuing with the same color, work in basic one-color brioche rib as follows: *brSl (that is: bring yarn to front, slip 1 st purlwise, and bring yarn over right needle to back, creating two loops that count as one stitch), k1, repeat from * across row; turn.
Repeat that same row, remembering to work the two loops of each brSl together, until your swatch is 1" tall and you can see the brioche rib pattern. For details, see Basic one-color brioche rib at Stitch-Maps.com.
