Brioche stitch is a beautiful, ancient knitting stitch with loads of variation. With this technique, alternate stitches are slipped every other row, creating a very soft, stretchy, thick, fluffy fabric. Classic brioche stitch is reversible, with both a lovely right side and wrong side. It can be done in 1 color, 2 colors, or 3 or more colors, and has loads of variations and creative possibilities!
Participants will learn the basics of brioche stitch in the round, beginning with cast-on and setup for 2 color brioche. This class will provide an intro to brioche terminology and stitch definition, how to read your brioche knitting, and basics of brioche increase and decrease. Instructor will show examples of brioche variations and provide additional pattern suggestions.
