Squishy, captivating brioche stitch gets even more fun once you start expanding your color play. This class will unlock the secrets of knitting brioche back-and-forth in two colors, including casting on, working a selvedge, and tips for keeping track of your rows and colors. Once you’re confident with knitting the standard two-color brioche stitch back and forth, we’ll delve into syncopated brioche, a simple trick that allows you to enliven your brioche knitting with fascinating color patterning. This class is suitable for students who already know the basics of brioche. Please pay close attention to the required needle type described in the materials list.
