Once you try the brioche stitch, you will fall in love. The fabric it creates is so soft and luscious, you’ll want to make everything out of it. The yarn over and slipped stitches produce a fabulous pronounced rib which is extra thick and squishy. The one-colour brioche stitch can strike fear those that haven’t tried it. Don’t let it! Learning the stitch is not that difficult, especially with the easy step-by-step photos. After a row or two, the stitch process will be second nature to you. No doubt this scarf will be the favorite gift of the season. So loved and comfy, you are sure to want one for yourself too!
