Brioche Knitting


Brioche knitting is a knitting method that results in a fabric that is dimensional, two-sided, and lofty.  It can be accomplished in the round or flat, and in single or multiple colors.  Brioche is perfect for accessories:  use it to make reversible hats, cozy, sculpted scarves, and beautiful cowls. 

Brioche is a classic technique showing up in well-loved publications like Barbara Walker’s ‘Treasury of Knitting Patterns’ and Elizabeth Zimmermann’s ‘Knitting Without Tears.’  A quick search on Ravelry will show that it has a place in your twenty-first century knitting basket. 

Lancaster Yarn Shop is offering a Free Workshop called ‘Brioche for Beginners' on Tuesday, August 1, 2017.  We will make a simple two color cowl which will be knit in the round.  Pre-register by calling the shop!
