Both versions of this quick knit cushiony cowl are great first brioche projects. Like Multnomah Falls, this scarf has 2 cascading sections or you can focus in on just one of the “falls” and have a single wrap cowl. You will find yourself knitting both patterns in various yarns and lengths! The brioche stitch is completely reversible and is very squishy as it’s a double-sided stitch pattern. The scarf can be made in any length and using just about any yarn weight for varying levels of sophistication and to wear with anything from silk blouses to your warm winter coat. Warning: Brioche knitting is addicting…..enjoy!

Shown in Sirdar Baby Bamboo (DK) in Cream (SH131). 250yds for short version. 550 yds for longer version. You can use whatever yarn weight you choose, simply adjust the needle size to get the result you desire. A looser Brioche rib is squishier than a tight one and also uses less yarn. So, if you work a tighter gauge such as is shown in photos by Evamarie, then you will need to increase your yarn amount. As you can see the options are many with this pattern!
