Class Description:

One of the most common struggles with brioche knitting is knowing what to do if something goes wrong. In this class you will learn to identify some of the most common mistakes in brioche knitting and make a plan to address them. You will learn efficient ways to tink and frog brioche and when those are the right strategy to use. You will also learn how to fix dropped stitches and dropped yarnovers, as well as mistakes in patterning, such as decreases leaning the wrong way or misplaced increases and decreases. Finally, you will learn about the structure of brioche fabric to help demystify the fixing process and give you the confidence to tackle whatever
mistakes you encounter in the future. Students must be comfortable with basic brioche knitting flat as well as common brioche increases and decreases. Familiarity with fixing mistakes in stockinette is helpful, but not required.
