Knit the brioche scarf of your dreams with all your DK and worsted weight yarns. The sample uses three main speckled colors fading from light to dark with lots of color pops. Syncopated brioche with an increase and decrease forms the biased shape that gradually grows from a skinny width into a wide elongated shape. Change contrast colors every two rows and break the yarn leaving long tails for a fringed edge while you knit.
