Learn or practice Brioche rib work

Instructor: JC Briar

Brioche rib worked in two colors is amazing.  Even though you work one-row stripes, you get vertical ribs of color in a squishy, cozy, reversible fabric.  And when worked in the round, it’s a simple two-round pattern.  Learn all the basics in this class by starting a pair of wristers:  working brioche slip stitches both on knit round and on purl rounds; casting on and binding off effectively; keeping your yarns from tangling; and fixing mistakes.

Experience Level: Ability to work in small rounds using double point needles, two circulars, or the Magic Loop technique; no experience knitting brioche required.

What to bring: Smooth, plain, worsted-weight yarn in two solid, contrasting colors; size US 6 (4 mm) needles for working in small rounds (a set of double point needles, a pair of circulars, or one long Magic Loop circular); stitch marker to mark the beginning of rounds; crochet hook roughly US size G/6 (4 mm)

About Your Instructor:

A self-confessed “technique freak” and “skill junkie”, JC dabbles in all kinds of knitting, but has a special fondness for textured knitting and novel construction techniques.  If it involves lace, cables, or seamless construction, it’s sure to catch her eye.  She shares her enthusiasm by teaching at shops and fiber festivals, and through her book Charts Made Simple.  Her latest venture is Stitch-Maps.com, a website for viewing and creating grid-free charts of unparalleled fluidity, authenticity, and beauty.
