Brioche 3 is a stepping stone for the brioche technique. You need to have already taken Brioche 1 and Brioche 2 and feel confident in your skills in 2 color Brioche. Martina will be covering several ways to increase and decrease allowing you to create beautiful designs with endless possibilities. We will be working on a lovely hat Camella over the 2 hour course.
The kit is included in the cost of the class.
We will using a DK weight yarn, Liberty Wool as the MC(main color) and Carlton Merino Supreme for the CC(contrast color). You have a small amount of homework; Please check gauge and work the pattern the brim and up to the Camella pattern repeat before class.
The CAMELLA hat has a brim, is very stretchy and well-fitting at the same time. Knit it as a gift for the ones you love or spoil yourself. November is the perfect month to start knitting gifts!
Pattern is based on basic brioche stitches, increases and decreases. You should know that there is no br 4-stitch-decrease. You can do it, knitters!
The hat can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished cap over a steep-sided bowl or other head-shaped form to smooth the crown.
