Today we present a splendid cornucopia of wisdom and help.
Jen Arnall-Culliford, she of the Boost Your Knitting program featuring new techniques paired with excellent patterns, explores a technique that appears to be sort of impossible.
How can this be knitting?
This is one of the most versatile, dazzling techniques in all knittingdom, and with Jen at our side, it’s also completely attainable.
Not only does Jen give us the introductory video tutorial up top, she has created four additional videos that explain nuances of the brioche technique as well as cast-on and cast-off methods that work well with brioche.
Here are all five videos.
This is next-level knitting—full of surprises, and a style of knitting that is appearing all over the place these days. You really will open up your knitting horizon by spending a little time with Jen. As always, she is clear as glass about what to do. It’s one of those techniques that rewards a bit of practice. It’s just so beautiful.
Carol Feller’s Design: The Perfect Brioche Starter
The Flying Leaves Scarf is glorious—it uses Carol’s very own yarn, Stolen Stitches Nua. And the design gives us a lot of opportunity to learn the rhythm of brioche knitting.
Seriously, isn’t this astonishing? This is where you will feel extremely clever as you get the hang of it.
