Technique class with Kristina Parker
Just like the bread it is named after, Brioche Knitting is soft and light and downright scrumptious! We'll be learning the basics in this 3 hour intensive workshop. Single color flat knitting to 2 color to 2 color in the round. We'll talk technique and why it works, how to block it to perfection and where to apply it. We will also be utilizing the long tail or sling shot cast on for a beautiful edge. We'll be working on a folded top cowl of Kristina's own design which will allow you to use all of these skills in 1 finished piece.
2 Skeins of Super Bulky yarn in contrasting colors (the bigger the contrast, the better)
1 24" circular needle size US13 (if you know you knit a little tight, a US15 might be better)
1 stitch marker to fit that needle
Skills needed: Knit and purl (cast on will be taught if needed)
