Buttery Brioche - Double the Fun
Did you know....
- When Marie Antoinette said "Let them eat cake", she was actually referring to buttery rich brioche bread!
- Brioche knitting was inspired by the fabric on large Moroccan ottomans that were shaped like loaves of brioche!
Brioche knitting creates a cushiony, reversible fabric that is actually easier to knit if you use 2 colours!
Double your fun during this 2 hour experience. You'll learn how easy it is to knit a 2-colour brioche stitch. You'll learn by knitting a brioche sample piece on a pair of double-pointed needles. We'll share with you our secrets to making your own loaf of brioche bread.
And - to inspire you to create your own brioche, you'll leave with our Knit Pickers Brioche Cowl pattern, 2 skeins of Briggs and Little wool in your choice of colours, and our very own family recipe for buttery herb and parmesan brioche bread.
