This is an in-person class in our Zephyrhills, Florida store.

In this class we will work a swatch to practice two-color brioche knit flat. You will learn how to

  • cast on
  • read a chart and brioche symblols
  • change colors
  • fix your mistakes
  • make a nice edge

Materials:

  • We will be knitting a small swatch like the one pictured. You can use the weight yarn (worsted, DK, sport, sock) that you are most comfortable working with. For each swatch you will need approximately 12 yards of each of two high contrast colors that look good together.
  • The size needle that you would normally use for the yarn that you have selected, and also a pair of needles one size smaller.  With brioche it is often necessary to go down a needle size.

Level: Intermediate Beginner. Students must be completely comfortable with the knit and purl stitches.  Experience knitting brioche in the round is highly recommended but not essential.  Recommended intro class:  Beginner Two-Color Brioche Part 1

Cost: $25

Instructor: Carla Billingsley

Carla Billingsley rediscovered knitting shortly after her 40th birthday when she fell in love with handpainted and novelty yarns. At first she only made rectangles and triangles: scarves, throws, and shawls. Eventually she worked up the courage to try lace and socks. After learning to turn her first heel she realized that you can learn anything if you set your mind to it, and that learning is really easy if you can take a class with a good teacher. In 2014 she and her husband Curtis moved to Texas and in June 2015 they opened Quixotic Fibers. From the beginning, her vision for the shop was that it is not just a place to buy yarn and fiber, but that it should become a community resource dedicated to the preservation and development of the fiber arts, a place where knitters, crocheters, weavers, and spinners can gather to learn from and to inspire each other.  Over the past 8 years she has developed her crochet skills and developed a love for that craft as well.   In 2024 Carla and Curtis returned to Florida, leaving the Texas store in Emilie's capable hands, and opened a little sister shop to the Texas store in Zephyrhills, Florida.
