Brioche Stripe Super Scarf

Brioche Stripe Super Scarf

This week on Ask Me Monday, we revisit 2-color brioche stitch and chat making a Brioche Stripe Super Scarf. Brioche stitch, combined with bulk yarn, creates a squooshy, warm, reversible fabric. The Circus Stripe scarf uses the custom colors of Cascade Lana Grande that I helped develop for YarnYAY! This project is surprisingly quick (I made it over a weekend) to knit up, and boasts playful, eye-catching colors that will bring a bright spot to the winter cold. Enjoy!
