What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient! Enlarged charts were key for me and much easier in keeping up with pattern progress. The charts also helped tremendously in actually "getting it" where brioche is concerned.

And this is a beauty as well.

Thanks, again. You can't know how hard it was to frog about half the scarf because I found a mistake at the beginning of the second repeat. I had to do it though, because it's such a nice pattern. On another note, why do you recommend only wools or wool blends? Is it the inelasticity of cotton, bamboo, and silk?

Very nice work. Do these class is difficult for advanced knitters????

I found Nancy Marchant's explanations to be the key for me, as well as the ability to go back and repeat parts of the lesson whenever I wished. You just can't rush the learning process for brioche. It's really quite methodical and quite logical once you wrap your brain around the ways in which it's different. I encourage you to give it a try...just know that it takes practice, and for me at least, a quick "refresher" course going back through my class notes when I do a brioche project. The result, however, is absolutely worth the trouble. Good luck!
