Brioche knitting is a highly textured knitting technique that’s popular in Europe. Bluprint instructor Nancy Marchant is credited with bringing the brioche stitch into popularity in the US. Her class, Explorations in Brioche Knitting, is a wonderful, fun way to learn all about this method. But to see what kind of fantastic projects using brioche knitting you can make, let’s have a look at some Bluprint projects that feature the stitch!
