Get Knitting: Beginner Brioche



Brioche is not just a delicious pastry.  It is a method of knitting that creates squishy, stretchy, ribby goodness!  This is an experienced beginner to intermediate class.  If you can confidently knit, purl, yarn over, cast on (long tail or other stretchy method), and bind off, then you can successfully knit beautiful brioche patterns.  You will learn how to knit the basic brioche method in a single color using a combination of simple stitches that are used in a different way.  We will look at several examples of brioche stitch patterns, single colored and multi-colored, some simple and some complex with increases, decreases, and cables.  The beginner pattern we will use for class is suitable stitched up as an envelope pouch or a cowl so you will be able to show off your bodacious brioche!
