Candy Cane

Brioche looks so impressive! But if you know how to work ribbing and slip stitches, you already know most of the techniques required. Only one color yarn is used per row, and the balls of yarn keep themselves sorted out. What more could you ask for?

Candy Cane teaches one of the many brioche knitting stitches while working this reversible scarf. Since it is knit on the diagonal, there is more knitting and less turning the work. The diagonal shaping also makes a respectable finished edge without a border, which can be a problem with brioche. Experience required: knit and purl.

Model is made with a bulky teal singles and a multi color DK weight yarn using a 5.5mm/US 9 circular needle 16″ long. Double point needles are required for brioche.

Candy Cane WIP: The pattern pops one of the colors into ribs on each side of the scarf.

Bring at least 120 yds of two medium to bulky yarns (one solid, one multi color) and double point needles sized to the yarn. Avoid fuzzy or textured yarns, which don’t show good stitch definition and are hard to use while learning. Pattern  provided at class.
