Brioche stitch creates a distinctive, widely ribbed fabric that is wonderfully lofty and cosy. This two-evening class will cover brioche stitch basics and get you started knitting a beautiful brioche stitch scarf. On the first evening, we'll cover brioche stitch terminology, how to knit plain brioche stitch, how to work two-colour brioche rib stitch.
After a week off to practice, on the second evening, you'll learn cast on and how to work increases and decreases for two-colour brioche stitch, how to read a brioche stitch chart and how to gauge swatch for brioche stitch and you'll be ready to get started on your project!
