Note that because half of the stitches are slipped on each row, what appears to be a single completed row is actually two rows.


’Going Loco’ is a limited edition colourway specially created for Rooster Yarns by Manos del Uruguay - available from Laughing Hens while stocks last.

The Paralelo Scarf is reversible - Colour A will be dominant on one side and Colour B on the opposite.

In brioche stitch, a stitch and its accompanying yarn over are always counted as a single stitch.

Brioche stitch in two colours must be worked on a circular needle because you will be knitting two right side rows at a time, followed by two wrong side rows. Instead of turning at the end of the first row, slide the stitches back to the opposite end of the circular needle, ready to knit a second row with the same side facing.
