Brioche, worked in two colors, creates a squishy, stretchy, reversible fabric similar to a ribbing, but with a flair! Your color choice can make this cowl playful and bold, sophisticated, or soft and romantic. There are so many fun options for this technique and countless patterns are using this stitch. This cowl will teach you the basic brioche stitch and add flair to your wardrobe. 

This class is taught over two meetings.  First class will get you started learning the brioche stitch and the second class will be available for any questions, discussions of any issues encountered and ensuring you are comfortable with brioche.
