Class description: Two color brioche creates a fluffy and beautifully reversible stitch pattern. If brioche has seemed daunting to you in the past, this is the class for you! Brioche in the round makes the stitch pattern accessible to anyone who can knit, purl, or slip stitches. Because you are working in the round, you never have to ‘turn’ your work so you only have to worry about knitting the main side.During this class we will discuss the importance of color selection in bicolor brioche and how to fix common mistakes. Class attendees will receive a coupon code on Ravelry for a free download of the Mala Cowl pattern.
