Join KAH's Brioche whiz, Ingrid, to knit your choice of five Brioche knitting patterns. Ingrid has selected patterns that are suitable for knitters with a range of Brioche skills, from those who have learned Brioche but are still relatively new to it, to seasoned Brioche knitters ready for a challenge.

2) “Cuddle Me Brioche” cowl by Saturdayshopgirl

    Hi Judy, great that you are taking Ingrid’s Intro to Brioche class on Saturday! You should be OK to do the KAL after taking her class, but you can wait until after the class to decide. I believe Ingrid is planning to release her poncho pattern on Thursday after the special FB Live she and Sarah are doing at noon. Thanks! >

  • I haven’t done a brioche project for many years and am happy to have a reason to buy Michelle’s book. One question for Ingrid: what is the difference between fisherman rib and brioche, they both seemingly result in the same fabric . Thank you in advance🙋🏻‍♀️

    Hi Pam – Thanks for your comment! I’ve wondered the same thing before but not really taken the time to look into it. Turns out they are very related and can result in indistinguishable fabrics, like you said. This may be a topic Ingrid can touch on during the KAL (I will pass this along to her). In the meantime, I found this very informative article on the topic that may help you understand better: https://www.interweave.com/article/knitting/fishermans-rib-vs-brioche-stitch/
