NEW Specialist Workshop — Knit a Brioche Cowl

A Specialist One Day Workshop Led by – FIONA MORRIS

This one-day workshop is run by experienced tutor Fiona Morris, who returns to teach a new workshop for Born to Knit.

The workshop covers all the techniques needed to knit this striking cowl, and to create the curved cable effect. The cowl is worked in the round (so no sewing up needed!) in an aran weight yarn.

It is designed for knitters with some experience who are already familiar with basic two-colour Brioche knitting, and who would like to take it to the next level.
