Squishalishious! Two-Color Brioche Workshop!
Learn the Brioche Knit and Brioche Purl, then combine them to make a two-color cowl. Students will work on 16″ circular needles in class, which will make a headband or a narrow cowl. Once a few inches of brioche have been worked, students can bind off and use the headband as a gauge swatch for a longer cowl. We will also cover common mistakes and how to recognize them so you can keep going.
Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, bind off, easily recognize knit from purl, have a solid understanding of stockinette and ribbing and be able to create both without supervision.
