Brioche a Twirly Beanie Class

July 27, 2019 @ 1:15 pm - 4:00 pm

Brioche a Twirly Beanie

Worked cuff up in the round, make a cushiony beanie for that perfect holiday gift for colder times. It fits snugly on the head, and is designed to keep even the coldest head warm. The adult size pattern can be adjusted for smaller or larger sizes as well.  

Class size: 
Max 6  (Min 2 for cancellation purposes)
3 hours

Skill Level:
Advanced beginner to intermediate

Skills Required:
Knowledge of yarn overs, knit, purl and basic increases.


For beanie: 200 yards (total) comprised of two balls of contrasting yarn (one light, one dark), of 100% wool (avoid any synthetic or plant fibers if you can, but if you can’t, then make sure it’s a sticky yarn that won’t run easily if a stitch is dropped), worsted weight. 

Needles: US #7 in 16” circular and/or same size DPN or 32” circulars (for crown of hat – student’s preference), stitch markers 

For learning sample: Two colors, no more than 30 yards each, of worsted or bulky weight yarn – stash yarn is fine, one light color (Color B) one dark color (Color A), for learning the technique and practicing in class, with appropriate  DPN or Circular needle size to suit yarn weight


For learning sample: worked flat: with stash yarn and DPNs or Circular Needles (this will not work with straight needles), cast on 26 sts with color A, knit 4 rows in garter stitch to create a border.

For beanie: worked in the round:  Of the two colors, choose the one you want the brim of the beanie to be – this is Color A. Cast on 84 stitches, and join in the round without twisting the cast on and place marker to mark the beginning of the round. 

Work at least 1.5” of 3×3 rib (K3, P3) – if you want a wider brim, knit until you have a height you’re happy with.

Class cost: 
$40 per person
