Intro to Brioche – a virtual workshop with Ann Weaver

November 1 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Event Category:

Intrigued by brioche stitch projects but intimidated or confused by instructions? In this virtual workshop, you’ll learn one-color and two-color brioche stitch with the help of designer Ann Weaver. The workshop fee includes your choice of kit to make this gorgeous Rothko inspired cowl.

After three hours of doing brioche, you will feel like a master and will be ready to take on more complex brioche projects if you like. The workshop includes a detailed photo tutorial on working brioche stitch and suggestions for avoiding and fixing mistakes in brioche stitch. We also will discuss how colors interact in brioche stitch. The workshop is based on the Rothko Cowl pattern, which showcases the interactions among three colors in brioche stitch.

Skills needed: Knitting, purling, and working in the round

Techniques covered: One-color and two-color brioche stitch, lifelines, and color interactions in brioche
