Class I -Introduction to Brioche with Bristol Ivy 9:00am- 1:30pm (including lunch)
Learn to knit brioche and make a gorgeous accessory (Exemplum Cowl) at the same time!

Pattern will be provided.

  • Experience needed: comfort with knitting in the round, using stitch markers, increasing, decreasing, and knitting and purling.
  • Homework: none
  • Materials: Magpie will supply yarn!
    • Please bring: US 8 [5 mm] and US 9 [5.5 mm] 24” [60 cm] circular needles, writing implement for taking notes

Tuesday

-Breakfast on your own

Class II-  Slip it, Tuck it, Fold it with Bristol Ivy 9:00am- 1:30pm (including lunch)

Knitting is based off of two fundamental stitches, right? We knit, and we purl. But what happens if we. . . Slip? In this class, we’ll discuss how slipping (and slipping’s compatriots, floating and tucking) stitch- es instead of working them can lead to a pattern of their own and add texture, dimension, visual interest, and structure to our knitted fabric. We will start with a small swatch to understand the concepts, but by the end of class you’ll have the skills you need to create your very own slipped stitch masterpiece!
  • Experience needed: comfort with knitting in the round, using stitch markers, increasing, decreasing, and knitting and purling.
  • Homework: none
  • Materials: Magpie will supply yarn!
    • Please bring: US 7 [4.5 mm] and US 8 [5 mm] circular needles, writing implement for taking notes
