About the Class:
Brioche is meant to be a fun and engaging stitch pattern!!! I want to take away all the fear and uncertainty surrounding brioche knitting. Grab some bulky yarn and circular needles to knit my super popular Funfetti hat pattern! Two-color brioche is very fun, and can be easier to see the anatomy of brioche stitches, so we will be focusing on this during the class. Yarn choices and color will be briefly discussed. You will learn my favorite cast-on and bind-off techniques to use with brioche knitting, the basic brioche setup, and work on something you could take home to keep practicing!

This is a beginner brioche class! No brioche skills required. Previous knowledge of knitting and purling as well as knitting in the round is recommended.
