The perfect way to learn the wonderful, squishy fabric of
the brioche stitch: alternate it with garter stitch to create
“lifelines” in case of mishaps.


Sizing: One size fits all. The scarf as shown is roughly 6" wide; work to your desired length.  If you are worried about having enough yarn, buy extra.  (Make the scarf longer, or make a matching hat and mitts.) Use a straight or circular needle (your choice of length) in the size recommended for the yarn.
