Adventures in Brioche

February 21, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join Daniela on Thursdays, February 7, 14, 21 & 28 from 2-4 pm. $105 plus materials.

Consider this class a brioche clinic. Beginners will work on Nancy Marchant’s BEBEB Scarf, but those who are ready to move past the basic brioche stitch are welcome to make a brioche pattern of their choice. This is a class for everyone who has been intrigued by the beautiful patterning and squishy texture of Brioche knitting. We will cover casting on with 2 colors, setting up for brioche knitting and the brioche knit and purl stitch (aka brk and brp). After mastering these, we will look at how increases and decreases are handled in Brioche so that you are ready for more complex patterns! Be warned though, Brioche is very addictive…

Advance preparation may be required depending on the class topic. Details will be provided one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, and extra help outside of class if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
