This scarf is a great first brioche project, as it showcases all the basic brioche stitches. If you’re a brioche fiend and want a simple scarf that showcases the cushy stitch and your favorite worsted weight yarn, this is a pattern for you as well.

You can find a photo tutorial on all the stitches used at the end of the pattern, or you can watch the video tutorial – there’s a beautiful rhythm to knitting brioche and once you’ve got the motions memorized, you’ll not want to stop!

The scarf is entirely surrounded by an i-cord, for a pretty and finished look.
Have a look at the i-Cord Cast-On Tutorial!

You can find all the videos in the pattern discussion thread in my ravelry group as well!
