You asked for it and we’re delivering! Gina’s Brioche Cowl is the perfect intro to a two-color brioche project. This wildly popular pattern will teach you this simple multi-color technique that creates a beautiful fabric mirrored on each side - the color play of Fair Isle or intarsia without the bother of tangled balls of yarn and pesky tails. And better still, brioche fabric is truly as squishy and luxurious as its namesake, the light and buttery brioche bun, making it just right for cozy cold weather accessories. You must have completed the BRIOCHE TECHNIQUE CLASS PRIOR TO THIS two-color brioche class. This 2-session class will be taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held: 1 to 3 pm, Saturdays, Nov. 10 & 17.
