Brioche Demystified May 11 1:00-5:00 PMQuixotic Fibers
Saturday, May 11: 1:00-5:00 PM
This session is now full, but we have scheduled another one for Saturday, May 18 that you can register for here.
You've learned the basic brioche knit and purl stitches and would like to try one of those gorgeous patterns with the shaped brioche designs.
In this class Linda Johnson will guide you through the techniques of brioche increases and decreases used to create intricate brioche designs.
The class you will work a sample piece that includes the stitches used in Lesley Ann Robinson's Dandelion Fields Shawl and Poncho patterns. One of these patterns is included in the cost of the class (you can choose which one you would like). At the end of the class you will be ready to start the Dandelion Field shawl or poncho and are invited to join a knit-along with Linda to help you as you knit the entire piece.
- A small amount of yarn of the same weight in two different colors and needles appropriate for the yarn.
Instructor: Linda Johnson
Linda Johnson is a spinner, weaver, and knitter. She became interested in the whole process of creating from fiber as a young girl listening to a story about a mother who gleamed the wool from the brambles, dyed it with indigo, and wove the fabric for a dress. Linda learned to knit on a knitting machine, and then took what she had learned and applied it to hand knitting. This gives her a unique perspective on the knitting process. She had a custom design knitting shop for several years in Fort Worth and has been a judge at the Taos Wool Festival.
