I’m planning to teach a brioche knitting class at Stash in Corvallis on June 2, and at Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival on September 22. This is a three hour class, so it goes beyond the two hour Petite Brioche class that I’ve taught at Twisted.
I’m using my Heliotrope hat as the basis for this class, but I want to start with a bit of brioche rib before getting into the increases and decreases that create the leafy patterning. I may change the top of the hat too. We’ll see when I get to that part on the sample I’m knitting!
I love this color combo. While I’m knitting the sample, I’m taking the opportunity to make some video tutorials. Here you go!
Here’s my original Petite Brioche tutorial; I’m including it here so everything is one one easy page. I’m carrying my yarn in my right hand (English/throwing style).
Petite Brioche for continental knitters. I’m not the most adept at the left hand carry, but I wanted to show something that works with my Petite Brioche instructions. I think this does.
Where’s my YO? What to do if your YO goes missing from your slipped stitch.
And then I made a mistake not on purpose! So while I was fixing it, I made a video for that, too.
How to fix a brioche mistake, two rounds down. Yes, I did it, repeatedly, and lived to tell the tale.
I hope these are helpful to you!
