Master Colorwork with the Trillium Mitts Class
A great first colorwork project, the Trillium Mitts begin with a Latvian braid, then move into a simple stranded colorwork pattern. We will learn two-handed colorwork knitting, Latvian braid, controlling tension in colorwork, catching long floats without dropping the yarns, and following a colorwork chart.
Brioche Stitch 101
Learn the basics of knitting the popular brioche stitch. In this class we will learn to work brioche stitch both flat and in the round, as well as how to work two-color brioche. By the end of class we will cast on our own two-color brioche stitch cowl, and leave with all of the skills needed to finish it at home.
Please note that there is homework for Brioche 101 that must be completed before class!
Until August 6, classes are $60 each or $100 for both. On August 7, the cost of the classes will jump to $75 each.
