$25.00 USD Learn Brioche Friday

Brioche knitting is another style that has increased in popularity with knit design during the last decade. This deliciously squishy texture creates a double sided fabric with stitches that have a 3-D appearance.

In brioche knitting you learn how to utilize knit, purl, and slipped stitches worked together to create a new row of knitting.

If you have wanted to try your hands at brioche style knitting, join me at Yarnability to learn beginner’s brioche worked in the round, using 2 colors of yarn.

This class will be using the Hawthorne Cowl pattern from Circle of Stitches. This simple cowl will ease you into the world of brioche, but result in a gorgeous knit piece that can be worn right or wrong side out. You will definitely get a lot of compliments with this piece. Please see HOMEWORK note at the end of the page!
