Beginning Two-Color Brioche - In person w/Jenna Hycner

Beginner Two-Color Brioche – In person w/Jenna Hycner 

Brioche isn’t just a delicious bread (but both are good!). Brioche is a fabulous knitting technique, and one you will be happy to learn. It is a great way to play with color and get a super squishy and comforting cowl – as an added bonus – it is reversible!  

Skill level: Very advanced beginner/Intermediate.  You need to be very comfortable with knit and purl stitches, being able to “read” your stitches.   

The class will cover: 

  • Brioche basics 

  • Brioche Knitting & Brioche Purling 

  • Proper Yarn Overs  

  • Working in the round 

  • How to fix stitches and get back on track 

  • ***Students also receive video tutorials from the instructor on related class topics***

Instructor: Jenna Hycner - The Knitting Academy
Instructor Bio: Jenna caught the knitting bug one day, more than 30 years ago while waiting in line in a grocery store when she spotted a copy of Family Circle (or maybe it was Better Homes & Garden), which had a beautiful seed stitch cardigan sweater. ?That was it, I just had to knit it. I can?t remember where I got the supplies, but based on the pictures in the magazine, a sweater was born. One I can still wear today. Some say teaching oneself how to knit a sweater that would likely have been labeled intermediate to advanced was a challenge not to be taken, but I had no one to tell me I couldn?t do it ? not even myself.? It is that attitude of fearlessness that Jenna wants to impart to her students. Colorwork, such as fair Isle and brioche is some of Jenna?s favorite work. She is also madly in love with entrelac, or projects involving unusual construction. In a class, you can experience so many different elements of knitting and find what you love to create. Jenna?s teaching style is driven by showing you how to make decisions about projects, how to execute them well and really nail down a technique. Most classes will cover pattern reading, how to make modifications and how to hit the ?easy? button ? even if the project is hard.
