Fantastic Brioche Scarf Free Knit Pattern
Brioche stitch is considered an advanced-level knit stitch. However, one of the things I love most is teaching people all the tricks they need to do more with crochet and knitting. Therefore, I’ve made video tutorials for the Fantastic Brioche Scarf free knit pattern. With these videos, you’ll learn how to do the brioche stitch, read your brioche knitting, and brioche purl. Then, when you’re done, you’ll have this fantastic brioche scarf.
The scarf is a free pattern on Yarnspirations.com, and the video tutorials are available on the Marly Bird YouTube Channel.

What Is Brioche Knitting?
Brioche knitting is a technique that uses tucked stitches and working into the row below to create uniquely layered knitting. Brooklyn Tweed describes it aptly as: “a distinctive knitted ribbing technique recognizable by its heightened, doughy texture.”
Working with two colors, as in this scarf, creates beautiful colorwork and texture. You use knit stitches, yarnovers, and slipped stitches to create this great texture. So, even though it’s considered an advanced knitting technique – and you’ll certainly impress yourself with what you can create once you learn it – it’s not as hard to do as it might at first seem.
