An Introduction to Brioche Knitting-3 small projects
2 sessions- March 21st and April 4th
Instructor: Brigit Hampel
One of the hot trends in knitting right now is brioche knitting.
You see it everywhere in accessories and in garments, as an all over texture or as just a design feature.
This KAL is designed to give you the basics while you knit 3 small projects. These projects have been chosen to teach you one and 2 colour brioche knitting and simple increases and decreases and knitting brioche in the round.
Along with these techniques you will learn how to do a provisional cast on, graph in brioche, how to do an i-cord cast on/bind off and finished edge.
The techniques you learn while creating these projects will allow you to go on and knit many of the patterns that are Hot Right Now on Ravelry.
Water Born Headband – DK
Brioche Basix: Scarf – DK/Worsted – free pattern
Kodiak Cowl – 2 colour DK cowl or Skreppa – 2 colour fingering weight cowl, free patterns
Note: the 3 projects could be knitted with 4 skeins of Mineville 4-ply DK, 2 in colour A and 2 in colour B with a slight modification to the length of the scarf. You may also choose to do the cowl in any weight of yarn as there are a few free patterns in Sport, Worsted and Chunky that would be suitable. It is recommended that your 2 colours of yarn have significant contrast, one light and one dark-ish. Brioche knitting requires circular needles.
