$75 plus supplies


You've mastered the basics of Brioche, but you want more. Time to learn increases and decreases so you're ready to make all those stunning patterns! In this workshop, you will learn all your basic increases and decreases done traditionally as well as Patty's unvented, unwrapped versions. We will work with both word and charts so we really understand what is happening on our fabric. We will even learn how to create the stitches instinctually (that's right - without reading the definition every time!). By the end of class, you'll be ready to take on all those stunning Brioche patterns. Want to learn more? Everyone in class will get a discount code to Patty's video class that works through four Brioche patterns.
