Brioche Pastiche: Quick start 2 color brioche, with increases and decreases

Michele Lee Bernstein

Friday AM

Brioche Pastiche is a quick start class in 2 color brioche in the round. We begin with 2 color brioche rib in the round (either as an introduction for an adventurous beginner, or a quick refresher). Then it’s onward to a gentle introduction into brioche increases and decreases to form leafy patterns on a hat or cowl. Work at your own pace; your pattern allows you to continue working in brioche rib if you’re not ready to tackle increases and decreases! We’ll also learn about reading your brioche knitting, charts, and fixing mistakes. You’ll be well on your way to the hat or cowl of your choice by the end of class.

Skill level:
knit/purl; cast on/bind off; working in the round
