Brioche Knit Sequoia Scarf

Brioche Knit Sequoia Scarf

The Brioche Knit Sequoia Scarf is such a versatile scarf. You can knit this classic staple piece for women or for men. I knit this scarf using two strands held together of Date Nights Yarn by Lion Brand. It created such a squishy piece with excellent drape and warmth. You can use the double strand method or you can head straight to the bulky yarn and go that route. 

I’m a fan of lifelong learning and I feel that everyone should keep learning new things in life. So, if you haven’t yet tried out the Brioche stitch, it’s time to learn! If you have already learned Brioche than this is just a fun classic piece for you to whip up! Brioche knitting with two colors is stunning. If you want to try your hand at Brioche in the round with two colors, check out my Midnight Cowl. But, Brioche knitting with one color is also gorgeous and classic, so why not know how to do both?!

Important Notes

It takes 1-2″ to see your pattern start to emerge. 

Mark the right side of your work (as in not your wrong side). 

I also suggest putting in a lifeline here and there. I like to put one in after I do a few inches. Then I will remove it and move it up a few inches. If you mess up in Brioche it can be extremely difficult to rip back and correct yourself without having to rip apart your entire project. Ask me how I know that…
So do yourself a favor and just put in a lifeline and move it along with you as you work. 

Here is a video of how to work one color brioche – flat.

Please note that I do not create my pattern in the exact same way, so please watch that video to understand how to do Brioche Knit and Slip 1 Yarn Overs, but nothing else.
