There is nothing more soothing than the rhythm of an easy to work scarf. I was looking for something fun, easy, and interesting, with a lot texture. A little perusing of the Sequence Knitting book inspired me to try a knit and purl combination. A little garter stitch edging on the four sides gave me just enough pop and not too much thought! The shifting knits and purls made me think of a brick sidewalk, so I named this scarf “Brickie” for those brick layers whose work so inspired me.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between.
