Brioche fabric is satisfying to knit as it works up into a squishy and plush ribbing. This scarf makes the brioche a little more interesting to knit by working it diagonally. Stitches are increased and/or decreased at each edge of the scarf on every fourth row; otherwise it’s the same basic brioche ribbing that is so well loved by many a knitter.

About 5” (12.5 cm) wide, and 60” (152.5 cm) long.

DK weight (#3 light).
Shown here: Bumblebirch Quill (100% superwash Merino wool; 231 yd 211 m/3½ oz 100 g): puddle, 2 skeins.

Size U.S. 8 (5 mm).
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Removable stitch marker (rm); tapestry needle.

18 sts and 21 brioche rows = 4” (10 cm) in Brioche Ribbing (see Notes) after blocking.

-Because of the slipped stitches in the Brioche Ribbing pattern, when counting rows in the Brioche Ribbing, each row that you see is actually two rows worked. The number of rows given in the gauge is what you’ll see when counting the rows.
-Always knit the last stitch on every right-side row through the back loop, so the slipped selvedge stitch is not twisted.
-If using a hand-dyed yarn for this scarf, you may want to alternate skeins every fourth row to avoid color pooling and obvious color changes between skeins.
