Brioche has become the next big thing in knitting. Brioche can bring so much excitement to your knitting and it adds great texture to projects like hats and shawls and scarves. In this class participants will learn all the techniques involved in brioche knitting including reading brioche patterns and tips for keeping their knitting on track. They will take the class up a notch by adding a contrasting colour. By the end of the class they will have the confidence to knit a beautiful two-coloured brioche cowl.

Christopher WalkerCabin Boy Knits

Christopher Walker is a fibre artist, natural yarn dyer, knitwear designer, and founder of the Cabinboyknits label. Christopher splits his time between Toronto and his log cabin in Stirling, Ontario. His unconventional work is influenced by the environment around him, whether it be from the rugged Canadian landscape, or the vivid colours and graphic designs in Toronto’s tattoo parlours. He works with Canadian wool, and often profiles heritage sheep breeds. His work often profiles the dichotomy between masculinity and the soft intricate work of knitwear, and has been featured on the runway and at art gallery showings. For his naturally dyed yarn, he often forages in local forests to collect and create unique and distinctly Canadian yarn dyes. You can purchase his yarn online and can catch up with him on his YouTube channel Cabinboyknits.
