Basic Brioche Workshop with Fiona Morris
Sat 16th February 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm| £35
Brioche is a knitting technique that produces a thick cushy fabric. It can be worked in a single colour as a textured pattern but it can also be worked in two colours to create interesting reversible fabrics. In this workshop we will be focusing on the basic single colour brioche technique.
Once knitters are happy with the basic Brioche technique you can try out some variations such as combining Brioche with garter stitch or Brioche with cables.
You will need:
– At least 1 ball of yarn to work with. (The scarf in the image was knitted with 3 balls of Rico Melange Chunky.)
– Knitting needles the correct size for the yarn you are using. Brioche is usually knitted with a needle the same size as that quoted on the ball band. If you know your knitting
gauge varies from this i.e. is tighter or looser, adjust your needle size as you would for stocking stitch.
Cast on suitable for Brioche knitting, the basic Brioche technique, Brioche terminology, casting off for Brioche knitting, variations of basic single colour Brioche.
