Intro to Brioche Stitch
An in-person class with Xandy Peters
Mar 2, 9:00am-12:00pm
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.

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.
