Date: Sat, Nov 16
Time: 1:00 - 3:00pm

Brioche can be worked flat or in the round and with one color or two; we will teach you the flat method using two colors in this class.

Bundled in Brioche is the pattern for this class. You will need lots of colors to achieve the color block effect (an odd number of colors works best). The pattern is written for worsted weight yarn, but you can choose a different weight if you like. You will need a circular needle in a size appropriate for your weight of yarn.

Once you have mastered brioche worked flat, you will be itching to try it in the round, which, you will be pleased to know, is easier!
