Frequently knitters are intimidated by Brioche knitting. I'm a big believer in learning new techniques step-by-step. This is the first step in my Broiche knitting lessons and I will start at the very beginning. In this class you will learn the best cast-on for Brioche and how to work the basic Brioche stitch. Once you've mastered this we'll move on to increases and decreases in brioche and the best way to bind-off in Brioche.

Once you've mastered the basics you'll be ready in future lessons to move on to the next step, working in the round and two colour brioche. However starting slowing with the first step will give you time to really master Brioche Knitting and learn how to 'read' your stitches.

I have to compliment you on the pattern and the videos. I have never knitted Brioche and have always been intimidated by it. Your videos went through each step very clearly. The pattern is perfect for teaching all aspects of Brioche. It is repetitive yet keeps changing. Each increase and decrease section, I watched the videos. In the beginning, I had to watch the videos numerous times. By the end of the pattern I did not have to watch at all! I also learned new techniques such as the Italian cast on and the tubular bind off. The videos were indispensable to this pattern. However, I can see how much time went into both the pattern and the videos. The video instruction was really fantastic and was a perfect compliment to the pattern. The pattern as well contained so much instruction. Lots of work went into that as well!
