Brioche! It's a unique fabric that has taken the knitting world by storm. In this class, you will learn the basics of two color brioche knit flat with a very doable small project - a great way to dip your toes in! We will be using Xandy Peter's Brioche Fade Coaster as a jumping off point for our project. We won't be doing a fade in this class, but you will leave class with the skills to easily do a fade in your future brioche projects. We will be working in DK weight yarn for ease of learning so don't worry about what supplies the pattern calls for.

MATERIALS REQUIRED: 2 skeins of Ciao or other smooth DK wool in very contrasting colors and straight or 24"circular size US 6 needles. If you are a tighter knitter, move up to a size US 7. Copy of the Brioche Fade Coaster by Xandy Peters, free on Ravelry. You may want to bring paper, pen, and reading glasses if you use them.

SKILLS REQUIRED: Comfortable with knit, purl, and yarn over.

SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate
