Brioche Two Color Knitting

Come learn the basics of 2 color Brioche knitting with Lila. Both/either of the 2.5 hour classes will cover all you need to know to conquer simple Brioche Two Color Knitting. For your convenience one class is offered on an evening and another on an afternoon. You choose what is most convenient for you!

Brioche stitch is a great knitting technique that produces a warm, squishy fabric that looks rather like ribbing. Working the stitch in two colors is even more fun because you get a different predominant color on each side of the fabric as you can see above in her sample. Lila chose one chromatic yarns and one solid. Perhaps you want to go with two solids? It can be done!

Lila will help you visualize and master how the stitches work and how to fix an error if one should present itself. Step out with this knowledge into Brioche hats or even just fancy pot holders in a heavier yarn.
