Our Brioche Basics class will turn this popular, and sometimes daunting, double-sided technique into your next favorite stitch. Trust us, it's simpler (and more addictive) than you think!

You will learn: brioche knitting, brioche purling, slip one yarn overs, and the basics of fixing brioche mistakes.

Important! We recommend having at least 6 months knitting experience before taking this class. 

You must already know how tocast on, knit, purl, k2tog, work in the round, change colors, and pick up a dropped stitch.

If you do not know some of the techniques needed, we can teach you anything you need to know in our weekly workshop on Thursdays from 5–7 pm, or you can schedule a private lesson.

Note: this class has homework to be completed before the class starts! See below for instructions.

Required materials: 200 yards of fingering or sport weight yarn in two colors (100 yards each), US 4 (3.5 mm) 16–24" circular needles, and one stitch marker. We recommend using Shibui Birch.

Homework: 

  1. There are two size options for this cowl: cast on 110 stitches for an 18" circumference, or 150 stitches for a 26" circumference.
  2. Place marker, join to work in the round.
  3. Knit 4 rounds.

Please purchase your supplies at Cast Away. If you plan on buying your materials the day of the class, please come at least 15 minutes early.
