Brioche knitting is quite a complicated technique but the things you can do with patterns are so gorgeous that I’ve been wanting to learn how to knit brioche for ages. Over the past few months we have had Weekly Wednesday Zoom knitting mornings. Jane Renton has done some mini classes covering all sorts of knitting techniques in these sessions. One of these was basic brioche and you can find the video on our Youtube Channel. (Yes, we now have a Cowgirlblues Youtube channel, woo hoo!). It got me started and I couldn’t resist experimenting a bit with yarns and colours. So here is the Big Brioche Scarf knitting pattern.
The Big Brioche Scarf is a very simple construction – no shaping, nothing fancy, it’s all about the basic brioche stitch. And it’s a great way to practice and get comfortable with single colour and two colour Brioche. You could skip the single colour brioche ends and knit the whole thing in two colours. And of course you can play around with many different colour combinations. The Fluffy Mohair really lends itself to this pattern – a nice loose gauge makes it light and airy, and it’s a really generous length. You can easily adapt it to make it a little wider if you prefer by changing the number of stitches cast on..
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
