Brioche knitting can be a challenge to learn, but oh so squishy soft. I find it is best to start with Flat brioche knitting and then move on the knitting in the round after you have mastered flat brioche knitting. In this class we will learn the basics of two color flat brioche. When we complete our flat work we will sew up the long side leaving an opening for your thumb. You will then be able to do the other mitt when you get home, on your own, to reinforce what you have learned in the class.
Two color Brioche Knitting! We use circular needles or double points as we will be working flat. You need to be able to slide your stitches to the other end of the needles to do the next row (straight needles don't work because of the ends on the needles).
