Brioche Knitting – nothing to do with bread rolls! This workshop introduces the technique of brioche knitting or Fisherman’s rib. It is worked on double-pointed needles to create a reversible fabric which is particularly effective with different colours.
This workshop is suitable for knitters who are confident with casting on and off, and the knit and purl stitches.
