Inspiring and useful

I started this class knowing the basics of brioche, but wanting to refine my brioche knitting. Mission accomplished! I learned all the things I could not understand from books and patterns. I understood the reasons behind some techniques and I learned a lot about brioche knitting.
But the most of all I was very inspired! To see Nancy's scarves and other projects was so much inspirational. I just wanted to go and try some of her ideas, but also many new ones.
And the chart reading part ...

Make A Commitment To Brioche

This class has truly inspired me- I find Nancy's instructions very clear, but as with anything new, you must PRACTICE! Don't give up because the technique is different or difficult at first.

Overall, I would recommend two things:

1. Take Nancy's other Craftsy Brioche class with the Checkerboard scarf first, before you tackle this class. That class has the project oriented/focused type of lessons that really walk you through the basics of the Brioche stitch.

Great Class, Excellent Teacher

After knitting for over 40 years, I decided to try brioche. If you follow the instructions, you will succeed. Instead, for my 2 color scarf, I picked a slippery yarn.

Picture Worth A Thousand Words

I had checked out Nancy's Book from the library to try, but sadly like many crafters I am a visual knitter. This class has helped me see what I couldn't get from the book. Now I will buy the book❤️❤️❤️

Amazing class!

Nancy Marchant takes brioche knitting (which could be considered difficult), and breaks it down into manageable pieces. She is a wonderful instructor--very clear, with an obvious love for the craft. I rarely watch videos more than once or twice, but I have watched this one five or six times so far. There is such a depth of content-it is an amazing bargain, and just fun to watch! I highly recommend this class. :)
