Description: Brioche knitting produces a fabulous reversible fabric vaguely reminiscent of k1p1 ribbing, except double-thick and with luxuriously deep ribs. Two-color brioche is even more spectacular: one color dominates on one side while the other dominates on the reverse side, and both colors peek through in the recessed purl columns. A two-color brioche scarf would be a wonderful gift for a loved one (or for yourself).
Students must know how to knit, purl, and do long-tail cast-on
