Brioche Intarsia Workshop with Xandy Peters
Brioche stitch and Intarsia colorwork are best friends. In fact, it’s easier to do intarsia with 2- color brioche than it is with stockinette or garter stitch! In this class, we’ll review 2 color brioche stitch, then cast on a flat swatch. Using a combination of shaping and intarsia, students will knit a wavy color swatch. In the second half of class, students will learn how to modify their swatch, how to work in the round, and how to add intarsia elements to existing brioche pattern.
- previous brioche experience, in 2-color brioche.
- 3 colors of dk or worsted weight yarn
- Circular needles in a US #6 (4mm)
- stitch markers
- a pencil and eraser
- 2 different colored highlighters
Bring in something you’ve knit in 2-color brioche. A flat swatch works fine.
