This pattern was my attempt at a “male” Brioche pattern as a present to my son.
This scarf is worked in 2 pattern blocks – “circles” and “straights”. The scarf tapers slightly for a wider, shaped edge and it is reversible. I provided separate pattern instructions for each section so the pattern width can be extended, shortened or lengthened.
In my opinion the pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters with some experience in 2-colour Brioche, but I have included detailed instructions and I am happy to answer any of your questions. Stitches include Brioche left and right decreases and 2-stitch Brioche increases.
It can be knitted in 2 variegated yarns like here or in combination with solid DK yarns. In my opinion yarns with “bounce” and some elasticity result in the deepest fabric.
- experience level: intermediate
- techniques used: knit, purl, Brioche knit, Brioche purl, Brioche increases and decreases,
- gauge: 18 stitches x 26 rows = 4 inches / 10cm² in Brioche stitch on 4mm needles
- one size: 215 cm x 28 cm
- Any yarn of double knitting (DK) thickness in 2 colours; I find that wool with “bounce” creates the deepest fabric,
- I used for the scarf in variegated greys: hobbii “Carnival” double knitting (100% acrylic), variegated, machine washable at 30˚C, 1 skein = 100g / 362 yards / 240 metres:
- 4 skeins in “Basel” (shade 07)
- I used for the scarf in variegated greys and variegated greens: King Cole “Riot” double knitting (70% acrylic, 30% wool), variegated, hand washable at 40˚C, 1 skein = 100g / 324 yards / 294 metres:
- 2 skeins in “Domino” (shade 408)
- 2 skeins in “Foliage” (shade 1689)
- needles: 4 mm circular needles (or double pointed needle if preferred)
- notions: tapestry needle to secure yarn ends.
