    Welcome to the wonderful world of Brioche Stitch! Brioche creates a satisfying lofty, widely ribbed, double-sided fabric which is chunky and squishy, especially when worked with the right yarns. 

    People often find it intimidating, especially reading the patterns, but the amazing Renée Callahan of EastLondonKnit will breakdown the process for you and show you everything you need to know!

    • Brioche stitch terminology
    • How to read your brioche stitch
    • Troubleshooting your brioche knitting
    • How to work 2-colour brioche rib stitch

  • About Renée, aka EastLondonKnit:

    After studying fashion design with knitwear at Central Saint Martins college, I began to hoard yarn and a range of knitting machines. I love textiles and technical challenge of knitting. There is real joy in producing something both useful and beautiful.

    I am constantly creating new patterns and combinations of texture and colour and spend as much time as I can hand knitting. I love to see new knitters taking to the needles and teach a range of knitting classes.

    I have a podcast and have taught a class on machine knitting.

    'Renée Callahan is a knitwear designer and knitting teacher who loves slow fashion and believes in making and sharing beautiful, useful things.'

Who doesn't love a cheeky little freebie now and again?
