Event Details

Two sessions: Saturday, March 9 & 23, 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Learn the basics of the brioche stitch with Laura, as she guides you through making the BEBEB scarf, designed by Nancy Marchant…the perfect project to learn 2-color brioche! You’ll learn the Two-Color Italian Cast On, which has the correct amount of elasticity for brioche, and begins with a knit and a purl stitch — there is no edge, like there is with the long-tail cast on. You’ll also learn the Italian Cast Off, which complements the Italian Cast On and works very well with the brioche stitch.

Skill Level: Confident (Adventurous) Beginner; you can k, p, increase, decrease

*Supplies needed: BEBEB scarf pattern (available on Ravelry, free). US6 (4mm) 16″ (40cm) circular needle, or size to obtain gauge. Yarn: 1 hank each (~220yds [200m] ea) worsted weight, in two colors with contrast (e.g., light green & dark green). Our sample is knit in Malabrigo Rios.

Homework: TBD.

Instructor: Laura Hein-Eckel

Please note that you only need to sign up for one session (the first one)…you can ignore the second choice (we’re still working out the kinks in our system!)

Cost: $45.00
