Advanced Skills Series

Two Color Brioche

“Books & Bridges” by Christine Snellman

Books and bridges is a beautiful brioche shawl that utilizes two colors of fingering weight yarn. It has stockinette and garter sections between the brioche sections, allowing beginners to digest what they learned before moving to more complex brioche stitches. This is NOT a beginner knitter’s class, but if you can knit and purl confidently and read the knit and purl stitches on your needle, then this will be a fun class that concludes with a gorgeous shawl.
