Brioche Made Simple with Fiona
Learn all about brioche knitting with two colours in this class with the fabulous Fiona.
The craze that has taken over the knitting world in the past few years is deconstructed and made simple in this class. While learning the basic two-colour brioche stitches, including increasing and decreasing, we will start a simple shawl in two colours, which you can take away and expand into a rainbow using up all your leftover yarns.
Skill level: suitable for an Advanced Beginner knitter.
Duration: 3 hours
We will provide: Two highly contrasting coloured yarns and circular needles for you to use on the day. You must use circular needles as brioche can't be done on straight needles.
You're also entitled to a 10% discount on purchases of yarn, notions and books made in store on the day.
If you've enjoyed this class, or already know how to make the fundamental brioche stitches, and would like to learn more while building your brioche skills - book into our Brioche: Advance Your Skills class.

Fiona Donovan started knitting at the age of six with the encouragement of her wonderful Nonna. Teddy bears, Sasha dolls and Cindy dolls were all swathed in layers of garter stitch for quite a few years. After some misadventures with berries and beehive cables in her early teens, Fiona's knitting passion lay dormant until 2000, when a job in Melbourne and a wonderful wool shop combined to re-ignite the flame. Since then she has left no knitting stone unturned, and along with the explosion of knitting on the internet has kindled her deep love for sticks and string. Having struggled over the years with twisted cables, gauge errors and unfair isle, Fiona is more than ready to help you find your own way in the world of knitting. There is no right or wrong in knitting - there is only what's best for you and the project you want to tackle.
