Brioche Intersections Scarf

I love two-colour brioche - it is a gorgeous technique because it creates a lovely, squishy texture that is comfortable to wear. Plus, it can be used to create quite intricate patterns.

This pattern is for a beautiful wide scarf – and uses a stitch where two brk-columns cross to create a pattern of Xs.

The knitting pattern is available via

The pattern PDF is 16 pages long and contains

  • row-by-row pattern instructions
  • photo tutorials for the following brioche stitches
    • brk2inc (two-stitch increase in brioche)
    • brkLdec (left leaning two-stitch decrease in brioche) 
    • brkRdec (right leaning two-stitch decrease in brioche) 
    • brkX (combination of a two-stitch decrease and two-stitch increase in brioche - to create Xs)
  • a schematic of the construction and the increase/decrease stitches

To knit a similar scarf you need the following materials

  • a total of 310 grams of fingering weight yarn (i.e. about 155 grams of each color)– in two colours: I used two semi-solid yarns
    • Wollmeise Pure (dark blue) 
    • madelinetosh Tosh, Merino light, Frosty 470-O (very light mint)
  • 3.25 mm knitting needles – straight with double points or circulars
  • 2 stitch markers
  • a tapestry needle for weaving in ends
The finished piece measures 155 cm in length and 42 cm in width (blocked).
As for gauge: in pattern 21 sts measured about 10 cm in width and 23 rows about 10 in height.
