Brioche knitting is a very versatile technique that in it’s simplest form, may be worked quite easily without the knitter really being aware that they are using such a fantastic method. It creates a fabric that is reversible and because of that, the results are quite thick and full bodied. It can therefore be quite lustrous.
This workshop will teach the basics of this technique, as well as show it’s capabilities. There will be a couple of projects available for you to choose from on the day. The aim is to showcase a different knitting technique and inspire you towards future projects.
You will need to bring:
Pair of 3.25 mm needles and a pair of 4 mm needles; plus a 3.25 mm circular needle. If you prefer circulars then a 4 mm and 3.25mm circular is all they will need
2 x balls of Dk yarn in contrasting or complementary colours
You will also need to bring or purchase a packed lunch. We will provide refreshments (plenty of cake!) throughout the day.
Your tutor for this class will be Sara Thornett. Sara has a Masters degree in Fashion and Knitwear. She is a published designer with patterns in books and online. Sara is a very experienced tutor and works nationwide as part of the Rowan Workshop Team.
