I watched the free presentation of Curious Mondo's Basic Brioche Techniques class by Aubrey Koecher. I love the yarn she used on her two-color scarf (which she gave away during the online class) and I was wondering if anyone watched or bought the class and knows what the yarn is.

The live online class was free, but now it's for sale. I'd recommend Brioche classes from Craftsy as being much cheaper, but here's the link to the Curious Mondo Basic Brioche Techniques class: https://www.curiousmondo.com/basic-brioche-course

I have 2 Craftsy Brioche classes, Explorations in Brioche Knitting by Nancy Marchant, and Modern Brioche Lace. Both combined are less than half the price of the Curious Mondo class (if you buy them on sale as I did). Anyway, I've been bitten by the brioche bug and am now knitting the first piece, the Jacki Scarf, from the Explorations in Brioche Knitting class. I see A LOT of brioche knitting in my future.

I'm also interested in Brioche and also have 2 Craftsy classes. Life has been too busy lately but I'm anxious to get started too. I think the two-color work is so eye catching and is my goal.

Brioche is on my bucket list.
I also want to learm to bake Brioche. Not sure which I will attempt first.

Brioche is on my list of things to learn.

It sounds all too familiar....
Yes, once you're hooked on brioche knitting, there is no cure!
Once you understand the method, it's not difficult to design your own patterns either.
I find it surprising how fast brioche knits up, and because of that, a number of my relatives and friends got scarves for Christmas presents :-)

This struck me as so funny! I always think of the bread when I hear the stitch!

I have Nancy Marchant's classes and the Craftsy class by Mercedes Clark. For me, it was easier to start with Mercedes' class first because she starts with one color and then goes on to two. It was logical for me that way. Then I worked through Nancy's classes and they were terrific. I've completed several brioche projects and am truly addicted.
For those of you ready to start brioches, best advice I got was to make my first project In The Round. It's easier because you don't have to think about moving stitches from one end to the other; you just concentrate on the brioche technique. After you've done one ITR piece, tackle flat and sliding stitches will be a snap.

It's also on my "must do list" ☺
