Intrigued by brioche stitch projects but intimidated or confused by instructions? In this workshop, you’ll learn one-color and two-color brioche stitch. After a full day of doing brioche, you will feel like a master and will be ready to take on more complex brioche projects if you like. The workshop includes a detailed photo tutorial on working brioche stitch and suggestions for avoiding and fixing mistakes in brioche stitch. We also will discuss how colors interact in brioche stitch.
The workshop is based on Ann’s Rothko Cowl pattern, which showcases the interactions among three colors in brioche stitch.
Skills needed: Knitting, purling, and working in the round
Techniques covered: One-color and two-color brioche stitch, lifelines, and color interactions in briocheMaterials needed:
- Three colors of worsted-weight yarn: 100 yards, 150 yards, and 200 yards
- 24-inch circular needles in Size 6, 7, and 8. We will use only the Size 8 in class.
- Stitch marker
- A copy of the pattern Rothko Cowl (we will send to you)
- Tapestry needle (for lifelines and troubleshooting)
Come with at least one color of yarn wound, ready to knit! Preferably Harrisville Highland. If you would like to choose your second and third colors at the shop after you see examples of color interaction, no problem! Or, bring a bunch of yarns from your stash.
