Brioche Pastiche: 2 Color Brioche in the Round

Michele Lee Bernstein

Thursday AM

Brioche knitting is the current “it knit” and you can do it, too! Brioche knitting is easier in the round than flat, and even easier with two colors rather than one. We’ll learn basic brioche rib, and then move on to the increases and decreases in my Brioche Pastiche Hat. We’ll also learn how to fix common mistakes in brioche knitting.

Skill level: Intermediate
