You’ve learned to knit brioche, and you love it! But sometimes things go wrong. Learn how to fix common brioche mistakes, from simple missed yarn-overs all the way through frogging and getting your work back on your needles.

Prerequisite: Experience with 2-color brioche rib knitting. This is not a beginning brioche class. We’ll be working with a flat swatch, and instructions will be provided in the homework pdf. If you’ve only ever worked 2-color brioche in the round, you should still be able to manage the homework. Michele has lots of helpful tutorials on her website (pdxknitterati.com) to get you up to speed. Stop swearing and start repairing!

Homework: Bring to class: One flat brioche rib swatch, knitted in two strongly contrasting colors of worsted weight yarn on appropriately sized needles (US 6 or US 7). Leave work on the needles. (You’ll need to work your flat swatch on a circular needle or dpns. Straight needles won’t do.)

Additional supplies: One crochet hook in a size appropriate for the yarn in your swatches, size F or G would work. One extra dpn. (If you have something like the Susan Bates Handi Tool, with a crochet hook at one end and a pointy needle at the other, this can take the place of a crochet hook and dpn.) U-shaped cable hook. 4 locking stitch markers. 18” of smooth waste yarn for a lifeline. Yarn needle for inserting lifeline.
