Brioche Stitch Intarsia
With Xandy Peters
April 11, 10:00am-12:00pm CDT
Explore intarsia techniques in brioche stitch; it’s easier than intarsia in stockinette or garter stitch! Learn how to add color to a brioche stitch pattern and how shaping and stitch motifs affect the colorwork.
Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
Brioche stitch and Intarsia colorwork are best friends.
In this class, we’ll review 2-color brioche stitch, then cast on a flat swatch. You will find it is easier to do intarsia with 2-color brioche than it is with stockinette or garter stitch! 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 swatches and how to add intarsia elements to existing brioche patterns.
