What happens in this class?

Brioche knitting produces a very stretchy and reversible fabric that is also extremely thick and squishy due to the way it is worked. The name ‘Brioche Stitch’ came about in England in the 1800s.

In this improvers workshop you will learn a 2 colour cast on, Brioche Knit Stitch, Brioche Purl Stitch, and 2 colour cast off. We will turn your practice swatch into a lovely squishy mug hug. These are fabulous for stopping your hands burning while holding a scolding mug. You can get really creative with your colour choices and produce these as wonderful gifts for friends and…

So glad to have found an online class for brioche knitting! Me and my knitting friend were keen to learn this technique and Tracey was a wonderful teacher and very patient with us. Her setup for the virtual class was excellent, with a camera for her as a person to talk to, and a separate phone camera pointed at her knitting so we could see exactly what needed to be done. She even showed us the individual stitches that go into making brioche in both English and continental style, which was an awesome bonus as between us we use both. The course materials were great too - we didn't need them much in the class as Tracey explained everything very well, but they've been a great resource to refer back to and I've been happily brioching ever since. Would definitely recommend and absolutely take future classes on new knitting techniques with Tracey!
