BRIOCHESTARTER HAT (knit) - Sundays from 2:30-4:30pm beginning Sep 17

Are you an adventurous knitter? Come make this cute hat by Raina K and learn basic 2-color brioche. It's easier than you think! Don't let the 2-color knitting intimidate you - you're only working with one color at a time, and using two colors actually helps you understand how brioche knitting works.

Skills taught in this class:

  • Brioche knit and purl
  • Brioche decreases
  • Managing yarns while working in the round
Class Materials:
  • Pattern - BriocheStarter Hat by Raina K (free on Ravelry - students must download and print their pattern prior to the class)
  • Yarn (must be purchased separately from 3 Kittens Needle Arts) - worsted weight yarn: ~120 yards each of two high-contrast colors. We suggest Berroco Ultra Wool or Malabrigo Rios (1 skein of each color).
