Tulpenzwiebeln Scarf

A while ago, I became quite obsessed with two-colour brioche – so obsessed that I even ventured far out of my colour comfort zone. This scarf is a fun and colorful two-colour brioche project – and once you get into the rhythm, the pattern is easy to remember.
You start with a few stitches and increase until the scarf has the width you like. That's why it can easily be used with other yarn weights as well.
As to the name, "Tulpenzwiebeln" is the German word for tulip bulbs.

The pattern PDF is available for purchase

It is 9 pages long and contains:
  • row-by-row pattern instructions
  • photo tutorial for the following brioche stitches: 
    • brk2inc
    • brk6inc
    • working a brk6inc in the next row 
    • brk6Ldec
    • brk2Ldec (on top of a brk6Ldec) 
  • a schematic of the construction and the increase/decrease stitches

To knit this pattern you need the following knitting skills:
  • basic two-colour brioche

The following materials are necessary to knit this scarf:
  • 150 to 200 grams of fingering weight yarn (in at least two colors) –  the pattern is written in a way, that you can use it for other yarn weights as well
  • 3.25 mm knitting needles – straight with double points or circulars
  • a tapestry needle for weaving in ends

The scarf I knitted is (blocked) 210 cm long and 19 to 21 cm wide. It is constructed in a way that you start with a few stitches only – and you gradually increase until your scarf is as wide as you want it to be.
