Master BRIOCHE with KnitGraffiti


We’re HAVING A STAYCATION! We are hosting the lovely Lesley Robinson, AKA @knitgraffiti on Instagram & Ravelry, for a weekend of BRIOCHE virtual learning!!!!!

Mark your calendars for Aug. 13-15! Many of you met Lesley last year as she is the pattern designer behind the Winginit Shawl & the consecutive Knit-A-Long.

Lesley has been busy designing a BRAND NEW two-color shawl for you, too, which will be debuting during The Flying Needles’ Aug. 13-15 Staycation! On a size 4 needle, this brioche & garter shawl in fingering weight yarn is the perfect brioche shawl for the summer. She’s been releasing sneaky peeks of the shawl designed in Robin’s Promise Yarn Co.’s White-Tailed Robin Feather and Pheasant Crown (Songbird Fingering). Lesley designed this shawl with those who have never attempted brioche in mind, so if you want to learn this knitting technique, this is the time! The whole weekend has been built with YOU in mind!

All events will be held on Zoom, and each will require its own passcode. So without further ado, here’s our Staycation weekend’s itinerary:

Aug. 13, Friday – Fireside Chat, 7 to 8:30 pm EDT, $20

Aug. 14, Saturday – Beginner Brioche in the Round, 9 am to 12 pm EDT, $60

Aug. 14, Saturday – Shawl class Session 1 (two sessions), 1 pm to 4 pm EDT, $120 (includes pattern)

Aug. 15, Sunday – Fixing and Finishing Brioche, 9 am to 12 pm EDT, $60

Aug. 15, Sunday – Shawl class Session 2, 1 pm to 4 pm EDT

We also have the ALL-INCLUSIVE STAYCATION PASS! This pass is $300 and includes all three classes and the fireside chat, the shawl pattern, and Robin’s Promise Yarn Co. yarn to complete the brioche & garter shawl.

Let us know if you need needles sent with your package! They are not included in the price.

Seating is limited in all classes and the chat. Please click the link below to choose YOUR class! Yarn pre-orders will open in June for the 2-color shawl kits.
