Description

Join us in our award-winning yarn shop in Bovey Tracey for a workshop from inspiring expert teacher and designer Alison Crowther-Smith.

Learn to knit Brioche in the round at this exciting workshop from Alison. Brioche is HUGE now and this course has ‘Anglicised’ all the terms for you so it fully UK-friendly! Brioche in the round is a great technique to have – easier, faster and much more memorable than flat-knitted Brioche, and Alison will teach you this on a single circular needle for even faster Brioche knitting. By choosing yarns with great colour contrast, you achieve a chic and reversible ribbed effect. This cowl is a real head-turner.

Three cowls have been designed for the workshop, in chunky and aran yarns. Brioche creates a beautiful totally reversible fabric that is warm, light and incredibly stylish. It looks hard – but this course will show you how easy this is. The cowls also make fast and economical gifts. Once you have learned this skill, you can also use it for other projects such as hats and mitts! Everyone will receive both patterns, from which you can choose one to start on the day.

Skill level: This course is not suitable for beginners and you will need to have some experience of knitting in the round. On the day you will learn how to set up your Brioche stitch and how to work the pattern using Brioche stitch. The yarns you choose must have enough colour contrast to make the Brioche stitch work effectively, for example light and dark blue.

For the Aran weight cowl:

1 x size 4.5mm circular needle 40cm or 60cms long measured tip to tip
