Melissa Leapman - Faux Bri-Aux on March 13, 1-3pm CT (via Zoom)


Do you love the look of brioche knitting but can't keep your "brk" and "brp" stitches straight? In this 2-hour hands-on workshop, national instructor/designer Melissa Leapman will teach you how to work several super-squishy - and fun! - stitch patterns that look like brioche without all the fuss!
