Cause and Effect Scarf
Pick any yarn (yarns with a halo may yield best resutls), grab some needles that are at least 2 sizes larger than you would normally use, and work up a quick, reversible scarf that will have people guessing at the stitch pattern.
The stitch pattern is a variation of the cascade brioche stitch presented in Nancy Marchant’s Knitting Brioche book. The pattern uses brioche terms and abbreviations as standardized by Nancy in the book.

Here’s a blog post that describes how to modify the pattern to taper the ends.
