An easy intro to two-color brioche, this scarf is worked lengthwise, giving time to develop a rhythm before beginning the next row of the two-stitch, four-row repeat. I-cord ends, which hide the unused color carried up the side, are knit at the same time as the scarf. Pattern includes instructions for a one-color gauge swatch, helpful for checking tension and practicing the basic brioche stitch.
