Fixing Mistakes in Brioche Knitting with Xandy Peters
Saturday, March 2, from 2-5 PM
$150 plus materials
If you enjoy knitting brioche stitch but still feel lost if a mistake occurs, this class will get you back on track. Brioche mistakes, like the stitch itself, are unique from other knitting mistakes and often require special skills. In this class, we will look at the structure of brioche fabric and learn when and how to rip back multiple rows, fix laddered stitches, and even correct a missed increase or decrease. We will also learn to spot mismatched, dropped, or twisted tuck stitches.
Each student will cast on and begin a swatch of simple brioche stitch before class and is encouraged to follow along with demos of each fix. They can also bring in their brioche projects for help and advice.
Requirements: This class is best suited for students with a good understanding of basic 2-color brioche stitch who are ready to build their knowledge of brioche knitting.
Supply List: swatch on the needles (homework), 2 extra colors of yarn in worsted weight, extra set of #7 needles (or an appropriate size for your yarn), stitch holder, cotton crochet thread or thin string for a lifeline, tapestry needle, locking stitch markers, crochet hook.
