Two Color Brioche Scarf

Brioche Stitch combined with super soft Chateau makes a sublimely squishy fabric perfectly suited for wrapping around your neck for warmth and coziness. Our resident brioche queen Edith Murphy explains each step of this scarf pattern making it a wonderful first foray into brioche knitting. The pattern can be easily altered to any width scarf you wish by casting on the appropriate odd number of stitches.

MountainTop Chalet's colorful cousin, Chateau is the same super-soft baby alpaca/bamboo blend with a chainette construction. It knits up quickly, which is perfect for gifts that you need to make in a hurry. Any pattern written for Chalet will knit up just as beautifully in Chateau.
