Intro to Brioche Knitting


Price includes 2 hours of class.

A Virtual Class With Xandy Peters

May 13, 10:00am-12:00pm CDT

Brioche fabric is known for being double-sided and extra squishy. The technique is easy once you learn the basics, but it can be difficult to get started on your own. Xandy introduces both the basics and the logic behind this notorious technique.

Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 14 days following the event.

First, we will make a basic swatch and look at the unique terms and symbols used in brioche stitch patterns. The second half of the class is dedicated to examining and understanding our brioche swatches and troubleshooting common mistakes.

This class focuses on 2-color brioche worked flat, but information will also be provided for 1-color (it’s more advanced than with 2 colors!) and circular techniques.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this class:
Knit, purl, slip, yarn over and experience reading written or charted patterns.

Excellent class!

This class was excellent! I've wanted to learn for a long time and two-hour class in real time with recording was the perfect way for me to get started learning this technique. Xandy is a great teacher and the class was really well paced. I particularly appreciated the great handout provided well ahead of time. That really helped me follow things through the class. I often make a mistake, have to rip out a bit, then get behind. That's ok because I have the recording. It's very hard to balance plodders like me with people who are faster paced. I thought Xandy did a great job with that balancing. In the future, I'd be interested in brioche class for a focused beginner project, like fingerless mitts, or something like that.

Great class! I had tried brioche knitting before but found the intro using two colors of yarn much easier to understand. I would recommend to anyone wanting to get started in brioche knitting.

Good Class

This is one of the best classes I have taken from Stitches. The handout was excellent. The amount of information exactly fit the time allocated. The teacher was very clear and helpful. I learned a lot in the class. Thanks!
