Download Now or use the Ravelry link to my Biscuit Scarf.* This used two skeins of Zauberball, done in Brioche stitch. (If you don't know, Brioche can be both a stitch pattern and a type of bread.) I’ve found directions for both a little confusing, so I was delighted to find an old book with instructions that made sense and made the whole process less confusing. The combination of self-striping yarn & simplified instructions made this such a pleasure to knit that I’ve named this scarf pattern “Biscuit”. Just like quick breads, this is fast & easy, with an end result that’s a pleasure to enjoy!
Most brioche stitch patterns that I’ve seen use a smaller needle than the yarn typically calls for, to give a more dense fabric. This pattern utilizes the opposite logic, and uses a larger needle for a somewhat lacy and open effect.
Hopefully this will help keep us all warm through the upcoming winter!
