::Virtual:: Intro to Brioche Stitch with Kira K



Intro to Brioche Stitch

Create lofty, textured fabric using Brioche Stitch, which resembles ribbing but with much more depth and many more possibilities. We'll knit a swatch (which could be the start of a scarf) in basic Brioche Stitch and start a reversible two-color Brioche Stitch cowl for a richly textured and reversible fabric. We will also cover fixing common mistakes in Brioche Stitch. 

Materials Needed: 

  • 30 (300) yards smooth worsted or Aran weight yarn for a swatch (scarf)
  • 100 yards smooth worsted or Aran weight yarn in each of two highly contrasting colors for your cowl
  • 16” circular knitting needles AND another set of straight or circular needles in size 6-9 US (1-2 sizes smaller than that recommended for your yarn)
  • stitch marker
  • Zoom access on a computer or tablet/iPad. We do not recommend attending this class on a smartphone, as the image may be too small for you to see the demonstrations.
  • Zoom instructions and a link will be provided in your class email within a week of the class date.
  • You may want to print out the handout that will be emailed to you two days in advance and/or have note-taking supplies.
Pre-Class Preparation:
Loosely cast on 70 stitches on 16" circular needles with either color for the cowl, join into the round, and work four rounds garter stitch: [purl 1 round, knit 1 round] twice.
