We love online learning. Especially when we're able to bring great instructors like Kate Atherley right to you. Using Zoom as our online videoconferencing platform, you can take this class from anywhere. 

Not just a fancy bread!

Brioche knitting uses a simple and clever technique to create beautiful fabrics – deep ribs and fascinating colourwork. It’s particularly effectively in two colours, and is an excellent way to tame a busy variegated yarn. This class covers the skills for working brioche patterns, including reading the sometimes-complicated instructions, and fixing mistakes. Knitters will leave with a one-of-a-kind shawl or scarf project well underway.

This 2 hour workshop takes place on Tuesday, January 23 starting at 11:00 am PST, 12:00 pm MST, 1:00 pm CST, 2:00 pm EST, 3:00 pm AST.

Skill level: advanced beginner - intermediate. You are proficient with knitting and purling and confident with increasing and decreasing.

Please bring: a 16-20 inch circular 4mm/US #6 needle and 2 strongly contrasting colours of scrap worsted weight yarn; 250-300 yards each of two colours of yarn: recommend one variegated, one solid; newer knitters should bring DK or worsted; more experienced knitters can bring fingering or sport.
