Description

There’s no wrong side in knitting brioche: each row is knitted on both sides, creating a thick, cushiony fabric that is lush and lovely in one color and spectacular in two or more. Patterns are equally attractive front and back, perfect for scarves and shawls, and even larger garments where such versatility is desired. Learn the basics and nuances of brioche from an instructor who has spent 20 years researching and refining this increasingly popular stitch!

NOTE: If you’d like to purchase only the DVD for this class, you may do so through this link. (Please note, any class PDF materials are not on the DVD itself. You must have streaming access to download those materials associated with the class.)
