2-Colour Brioche Knitting Online Workshop

My first online knitting workshop will be live on Wednesday 6th January 2021.

Kits are available from my website ,or at Knitting Pretty and Ewe and Yarn from Tuesday 7th December 2020.

The workshop is designed to recreate as closely as possible the experience of attending the usual in-person workshop day.

Brioche knitting in 2 colours creates an amazing, reversible fabric which is absolutely ideal for scarves, cowls, shawls etc. By creating movement in the lines of the brioche rib we reveal fascinating patterns and designs which are incredibly satisfying.

You will need to be an adventurous OR confident and experienced knitter to tackle this technique, but it is well worth the effort when you see the results which can be achieved.

Watch the following video where I will show you some finished pieces and tell you more!

In this workshop we will look at the skills needed to get going with 2-colour brioche knitting and practise the increasing and decreasing stitches used to produce the elegant waves and designs which will be a real wow factor in your finished piece.

Here I am again explaining what you will learn in the workshop.

This is how it will work.

You will download a pdf from the website which will give instructions on how to create the practise pieces. The pdf will also include a link to online tutorials where I will show you how to carry out the techniques and you can work through them alongside me.

You will be able to choose a kit to create your own brioche cowl and have a new and exciting project to finish at your own pace.

You will need some double pointed or circular knitting needles.

For the cowl project you’ll require 5mm circular needle OR long dpn’s.

The kit will include 2 skeins of West Yorkshire Spinners aran yarn plus pdf of instructions for the practise pieces and the pattern to make your cowl.

Before you go I have made a final video looking at choosing colour for your cowl.

It is important to me that you get the most out of my workshops and feel like you can come to me for help if you need it, so I am setting up a special page on Facebook, which you will be invited to join when you buy the workshop.

Members will be able to use this page to support & encourage each other plus seeking guidance from me where needed.
