Next Steps Brioche

Sorry, this workshop isn't currently scheduled!


Brioche knitting creates a loose beautifully squishy fabric with lovely drape. It works by knitting and slipping stitches with yarn overs. When worked with two colours it creates stunning reversible fabrics.

This class is a follow on from our introduction to Brioche workshop and includes a recap on basic skills and then goes on to more advanced Brioche techniques including:

  • Brioche knits and purls in one colour
  • Two colour brioche knitting with Italian cast on
  • Syncopated brioche
  • Recap on basic increases and decreases
  • Advanced increases and decreases
  • Reading brioche charts
  • Combining brioche with other stitch patterns
  • Matching Italian cast off


You will need to bring the following:

  • 2 colours of DK yarn
  • 4mm circualr needles

You will also need to bring or purchase a packed lunch. We will provide refreshments (plenty of cake!) throughout the day.


Your tutor for this class will be Carol Ibbetson. Carol works with many of the big publishers as a technical editor and pattern grader for knitting and crochet books. She is also a designer in her own right with a passion for sharing her skills.
