Idealis: the late Latin root of the word ideal.

Idealis is the third project in Brioche from the Roots Up, a four-month-long, project-based course on everything you ever wanted to know about brioche (and probably more).

It is currently only available for purchase as part of the Tier 1 e-book of four patterns for the class, all of which are written with not just the how of brioche, but the why.

Tier 2 includes the ebook as well as lifetime access to in-depth video tutorials walking you through each step in English, continental, and combination knitting styles.

Tier 3 includes all of the above, as well as three months of weekly Zoom classes with yours truly and your brioche cohorts. This level is currently sold out for the spring session, but a new session will begin June 15th. Email bristol@bristolivy.com for more info and to be put on the waitlist!
