This cruise friendly introduction to 2 color brioche in the round will give you all the skills you need to begin your brioche adventure.  We will start with an I-cord you work ahead and cover setting up your pattern, the differences that working in the round presents, finding where you are in your project, backing up properly, and (Most important of all!) picking up dropped brioche stitches.
