you know you want to learn the brioche stitch…

Would you like to learn the brioche stitch? Lucky you! I’m teaching a class at Serial Knitters:

  • Saturday, August 8th 1:30pm—3:30pm
  • Cost $35 plus supplies

All the details… 

Introduction to Brioche Stitch

The knitterati are calling brioche stitch THE stitch of 2015. Have you played with it? This rhythmic stitch creates a lofty fabric and the variations are fascinating. Gorgeous patterns by Nancy Marchant and Stephen West are seriously tempting, but it can be tricky to get started by reading a book. Get some hands-on help from Pamela Grossman in this beginning brioche class.  As a case study, we’ll review instructions for two lovely beginner-level patterns. If you’re feeling adventurous, bring along yarn to get started on one of these free beginner projects:

You’ll learn:

  • basic brioche stitch
  • brioche terms
  • reading brioche patterns and charts

 

You’ll need:

  • worsted weight scrap yarn and needles that match for swatching and practice
  • supplies for one of the beginner projects, if you want to give it a try (yarn, needles, printout of the free pattern, notions, etc.)
