Simple Brioche Knitting: The Macro Scarf
Date(s) - Sat, January 14, 2017
2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Over The Rainbow Yarn
This January, we will help you bundle up and stay warm with classes on thrummed mittens and mega-fluffy brioche scarves!
Brioche knitting is a technique that creates a fabric as light and fluffy as the delectable French bread of the same name. Super-sized knits are in style this season, eminently cozy and incomparably quick to work up. We’re combining the two to help you create the warmest, loftiest scarf you’ve ever worn.
In this class, we’ll learn the basic one-color brioche knitting technique to maximize the fluffiness of Berroco Macro, the biggest super-bulky yarn on our shelves. You’ll be able to customize your scarf by making it wider, narrower, longer, or shorter as you like, or by using multiple colors. If you sign up for next week’s Two Color Brioche Knitting class, you’ll be able to transition your scarf from a one-color section to a two-color section.
Knitting in super-bulky yarn on size 35 needles is so quick you should be able to complete a scarf in a matter of hours once you get the hang of it.

Note: If you sign up for this class online, we will reserve a spot for you and you may pay in person when you arrive.
