Newspaper Pullover (In Person & Virtual)

Let Megan guide you through the amazing squishy brioche sweater by Joji Locatelli - Newspaper Pullover!

Class will start with an introduction on fixing brioche mistakes and how to check your gauge and sizing for your own sweater. Ever drop the YO on your brioche stitch and not realize it until a few rows later? What about drop a whole stitch? Megan will demonstrate how to fix this, so you can avoid disaster and frustration! Please note this class is for those with a good understanding of basic brioche. HOMEWORK will be given prior to starting the sweater for class 1 in order to practice fixing your brioche-emergencies!

From there, class will meet in a more spaced-out time frame to allow you to have time to knit a whole sweater without rushing!

This raglan sweater has alternating blocks of vertical and horizontal stripes that flow like the news on the paper.

Requirements: This class will be in-person as well as virtual for those that wish to take advantage of Zoom. Please keep in mind that classes support yarn purchased at Amazing Threads.

Instructor: Megan
Instructor Bio: Megan is well-versed in brioche and calls it her "first knitting love" (thus her Instagram name "BriocheAndBrews"). While you may see her doing tons of colorwork what with all the amazing colorwork patterns that have come out the last couple years, the squishy texture that comes from brioche will always be one of her absolute favorites.
