Textural Brioche with Lesley Anne Robinson of Knit Graffiti Designs
Look at knitting a bit differently by exploring different textures created by brioche techniques! In this class, we will dive into several distinct stitch patterns using one, two, and even three color brioche knitting. Together we will look at color choices, and cast on a swatch to practice these new stitches. Consider this a special workshop to broaden your brioche horizons!
Prerequisites: Knowledge of brioche stitches knit flat
- 3 skeins / balls of fingering / sock weight yarn in different tones, scrap yarn is fine (light, medium and dark; I highly suggest solid or semi-solid yarn)
- 24” or longer US 4 or 5 (3.5 or 3.75mm) circular needles (interchangeables are fine)
- an open mind
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.
