Knitting Level 4: Brioche

Explore the extensive possibilities of brioche knitting! Brioche creates a wonderfully plush, reversible fabric. You will start learning the basic techniques by swatching, then begin your very own brioche pattern!

Students are responsible for purchasing their yarn and needles prior to the start of the class.

Length: 4 sessions x 1.5 hours
Pattern:  You are welcome to choose your own pattern so long as it is:

  • Knit in the round
  • limited to 2 colours
  • A pattern that doesn’t offer technical challenges apart from the brioche (for example if you are comfortable making mittens but not hats choose a mitten project.)

We recommend the Beehive Brioche Cowl - ask in store and we would be happy to provide the pattern free with yarn purchase.
