We are so excited to have Lesley Robinson aka Knit Grafitti at Do Ewe Knit Friday November 9,10,11.
Lesley Anne Robinson, the knitting pattern designer behind Knit Graffiti Designs. I love to create knitting patterns that focus on modern style with a flair for something different. After graduating from the College for Creative Studies (located in Detroit, Michigan) with a degree in Interior Design and a minor in Fiber Design in 2006, I moved to New York City! I spent several years there working as a commercial Interior Designer for Spin Design. I started knitting in college, but in 2015 I began self-publishing my own knitting designs.

Description: Satisfy your brioche cravings with modern two-color brioche lace! In this class, we will briefly cover the basics of two-color brioche and working with two different colored yarns. Color theory and advice about choosing the right yarn for your project will be covered as well. The main focus of the class will be learning and working the most commonly-used increases and decreases of brioche knitting to create gorgeous brioche lace fabric. We will be starting my most popular shawl pattern, Sizzle Pop, the triangle version. Together, we will work through the pattern, both written instructions and how to read brioche lace charts. Then you can take it home to continue working on it and have a finished piece that will delight and inspire!
