There’s no wrong side in knitting brioche: each row is knitted on both sides, creating a thick, cushiony fabric that is lush and lovely in one color and spectacular in two or more. Patterns are equally attractive front and back, perfect for scarves and shawls, and even larger garments where such versatility is desired. Learn the basics and nuances of brioche from an instructor who has spent 20 years researching and refining this increasingly popular stitch!

Nancy Marchant

The “Queen of Brioche,” Nancy Marchant, first encountered and fell in love with brioche stitch when she moved to the Netherlands in 1976. Since then, she has spread brioche to knitters far and wide, at events both large and small. Nancy has written for several publications, including Vogue Knitting, and is the proud author of two brioche books, Knitting Brioche and Knitting Fresh Brioche. She also maintains a website on the subject: www.briochestitch.com.
