Brioche knitting is one of those techniques that seems very difficult but becomes a breeze with a little practice and instruction! Included with this class is the pattern for the Better Than Sex Brioche cowl by class instructor — and newest Stars Hollow Yarns team member! — Lindsey Faciane of The Chesapeake Needle, containing detailed photo tutorials for future reference, if needed.

When this class is complete, you will have learned the basics of knitting two-color brioche in the round, while making a beautiful, reversible cowl. Just in time for Rhinebeck!
