During this class, students will learn the basic brioche rib stitch, how to knit brioche using 1 or 2 colors, how to bind off, and how to read their knitting. Students will be given a pattern for the Giant Color Shift Brioche Scarf at no charge, but in class we will be making a smaller sample piece so that all the techniques for the scarf will be covered in the time allotted. By the end of class, students will have the necessary skills to complete the scarf on their own.

For the in-class sample piece, participants should bring 50 yards each of at least 2 colors of worsted weight yarn (this can be scrap yarn); and circular knitting needles 1–2 sizes smaller than what you would normally use for knitting stockinette on worsted weight yarn. (If you are a tight knitter, go down 1 size. If you knit more loosely, go down 2 sizes.)

The Giant Color Shift Brioche Scarf requires size 7 (4.5 mm) 16″ circular knitting needles; and 3 balls of Knitpicks City Tweed HW in 3 different colors OR about 165 yards each of 3 colors of any aran/heavy worsted weight yarn.
