ADVANCED 2-DAY LIVE BRIOCHE WORKSHOP JULY 30-31, 2022

KnittyGrittyYarnGirl

 

Learn from the best and take your brioche to the next level while you work on a great project (or two)!

Once again, KnittyGrittyYarnGirl has teamed up with Pam Grushkin for this intermediate brioche class. We’ve chosen two patterns that will take you to the next level of Brioche knitting and open the door to all those Brioche patterns you’ve coveted for so long.  Choose both projects or one. Whichever you choose, over the two-day program, you will learn how increases and decreases shape your brioche and how to fix common mistakes in brioche knitting.

The Projects

BrioCherry Hat – This great design by Katrin Schubert has a brim, is very stretchy, slightly slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. The pattern has six repeating pattern rows and is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases.

Unda Shawl – Designer Lesley Anne Robinson, says of her design, “Unda is a beautiful asymmetrical triangle shawl that is knit using a combination of false cable, two-color brioche and garter stitch.

Each day has a morning program (BrioCherry Hat) and afternoon program (Unda Shawl).
