Introduction to Brioche
About Introduction to Brioche with Kira Dulaney
Create lofty, textured fabric using Brioche Stitch, which resembles ribbing but with much more depth and many more possibilities. We'll knit a swatch (which could be the start of a scarf) in basic Brioche Stitch and start a cowl in two-color Brioche for a richly textured and reversible fabric. We will also cover fixing common mistakes in Brioche Stitch.
This Fiber Arts Seminar is offered as part of the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and is limited to 20 students.
Class Materials Needed
You will need 30 yards of smooth worsted or aran weight yarn for your swatch. If you want a scarf instead of a swatch, you will need 300 yards. For the cowl, you will need 100 yards smooth worsted or aran weight yarn in each of two highly contrasting colors. Also needed are 16” circular knitting needles AND another set of straight or circular needles in size 6-9 US (1-2 sizes smaller than that recommended for your yarn), stitch marker.
Loosely cast on 70 stitches on 16" circular needles, join into the round, and work four rounds garter stitch: [purl 1 round, knit 1 round] twice.
Student should be comfortable casting on, working in the round, knitting, and purling
Single session on Friday, April 30, at 7 pm ET | 4 pm PT | 23:00 UTC.
Enrolled students receive 30-day access to the video recordings of the class.
