We will review k2tog, kfb, pfb, and m1L. You will then have two weeks to reach the point where we start the brioche stitch. Session 2: We will review the brioche stitch while reading the pattern both written and charted and learn the technique of working brioche flat and increasing and decreasing the brioche stitch. You will then have 1 week to finish the first section of brioche. Session 3: We will begin the color change of the second band of the brioche stitch. This class will take 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on how comfortable you are with making the color change. Class Size: 4 students maximum. 2 students minimum.
