Brioche Increases and Decreases with Lesley Anne Robinson of Knit Graffiti Designs
In this class, you will learn the most commonly used two-color brioche increases and decreases needed to create gorgeous brioche lace fabric that will delight and inspire! We will briefly go over basic two-color brioche for a refresher, as well as how to choose the right yarn for your projects. We will be going over the increase and decrease stitches in detail together, while casting on a two-color brioche swatch. Let’s get brioche-ing!!
Knowledge of brioche, knitting it flat. Basic previous brioche knowledge required.
- 2 balls of yarn in high contrasting colors, whatever weight you are most comfortable with. I recommend DK or Worsted weight, around 200 yards each
- 24” or longer US 5 – 7 (3.75 – 4.5 mm) circular needles to match gauge of your yarn. Interchangeables are fine as well.
About Lesley Anne Robinson
I am Lesley Anne Robinson, the knitting pattern designer behind Knit Graffiti Designs. I love to create knitting patterns that focus on modern style with a flair for something different. After graduating from the College for Creative Studies (located in Detroit, Michigan) with a degree in Interior Design and a minor in Fiber Design in 2006, I moved to New York City! I spent several years there working as a commercial Interior Designer for Spin Design. I started knitting in college, but in 2015 I began self- publishing my own knitting designs, and I love everything about this incredible community!
Brioche knitting is my passion. I fell in love with the technique and just haven’t gotten sick of it yet. I love to teach others how to knit those beautiful brioche stitches, and spend my days swatching out new brioche stitch patterns.
