Workshop meets Saturday, July 7th from 11am - 2pm
Brioche knitting creates a lofty, squishy, and reversible fabric. In this workshop you’ll learn to work basic brioche, along with increasing, decreasing, and finishing techniques. Demonstrations and a full-color tutorial handbook will guide you through your first brioche sampler with instructions for both Continental and British-style knitters (pickers and throwers).
