KnittingQuiltingSewingOther
  • Cost: $30.00 plus HST
  • Teacher: Linda Sellick
  • Dates: Saturday November 10 from 10:00am to noon

This class will teach basic flat, one colour brioche. You’ll learn the flat brioche stitch, flat brioche rib, brioche increases, decreases and cast off, how to count brioche stitches and rows, stitch recognition and how to read a brioche chart. There will also be a discussion of suitable yarn, needles and gauge for knitted brioche.

Brioche seems to be the stitch of the moment and this class is the first of a series of 3 classes meant to take you from learning the basic brioche stitch, to working it into a gorgeous 2 colour brioche cowl. Each session builds upon the previous one.

Students will receive Linda’s written and charted instructions for the small sample that will be worked on in the class as well as a copy of “Brioche Notes” that Linda has compiled.

Students will receive a 15% discount on class materials purchased at Knit Stitch.
