This reversible blanket is worked in 3 strips totaling 9 squares of 3 different brioche stitch patterns. The edges are finished as you work so no separate binding or edging is necessary. The pattern is available in three sizes and can be made using two colors of any worsted weight yarn. If new to brioche, try the small size to practice.

A circular needle is required for the 2-color stitch patterns, but the blanket is knit flat.

Links to video tutorials are provided for each technique – Italian cast on and bind off, 2-Color Brioche Rib, Cascade Stitch, and 2-Color Brioche Honeycomb.

The pattern consists of 6 pages, detailed photos of each side of each stitch pattern are presented on the last page of the pattern and can be omitted from printing if desired.

Don’t need a blanket? The strips can be worked consecutively resulting in an incredibly luxurious scarf.
