Liven up a simple 2-color brioche scarf with a scattering of horizontally striped stockinette bubbles. Both right and wrong sides are handsome – an important feature in a scarf. Since stockinette and brioche gauges differ, the bubbles create interesting undulations in the long lines of brioche rib.

YARN
Sweet Georgia Superwash Worsted (100% superwash merino wool; 200 yd 183 m/115 g):
• mink (MC), 2 skeins
• raspberry (CC), 2 skeins
Pattern as written uses about 275yd/250m of each color. You can make a scarf of perfectly respectable length (60”/150cm or a bit less) using only one skein of each color.

TOOLS

  • US Size 6 / 4mm circular needle, or two 10”/25cm double-pointed needles (DPNs) Straight needles will not work for this pattern, because each row is worked two times by sliding the stitches to the other end of the needle.
  • 3 locking stitch markers
  • Removable point protectors, if using DPNs
  • Tapestry (yarn) needle
