Class Description: Come make a hat for yourself or get started on holiday presents early! In two 2 hour classes, you’ll learn a German twisted cast on, two color brioche, an increase and two types of decreases.

  • Brooklyn Tweed Arbor— 100% American Targhee Wool (145 yards/50 grams) 1 skein of Light Color (LC); 1 skein of Dark Color (DC);
    optional: 1 skein of Bright Color (BC) (you will not need a lot of this, so use something from your stash!)
    Note: Pattern is for 3 colors, but we will also have a 2 color option

Gauge: 20 stitches & 26 rounds = 4″ in blocked brioche stitch for a 17.5″ brimand 9.4″ depth

  • Needles:
    • Size 4 US5mm 16″ circular or DPNs or whatever you need to get gauge
    • *32″ circular needle can be used instead of 16” circular and DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round.
  • Other notions:
    • Stitch markers


  • tapestry or darning needles

Pattern: Liabelle by Katrin Schubert

What skills you should have: You should know how to knit, purl, decrease, and be comfortable knitting in the round with double points, 2 circulars, or magic loop. Knowing the long tail cast on is helpful, but not mandatory.

What skills you will learn: How to do a German twisted cast on, work brioche stitches, and increase and decrease in brioche.

Homework: Please purchase and have all the yarn wound before class, so class can begin promptly. Please complete the brim before the second class (10/5). If you need support or want to meet before the first class, please email
