Better-than-brioche Scarf with Elaine Rowley
Elise Duvekot’s variant of Knit One Below is an easier and better
way to achieve the brioche look. Each row simply
alternates knit and knit-one-below stitches. The knit fabric lies flat, making it perfect for blankets, shawls,
and this scarf.
Learn the best cast-on and bind-off for K1B fabrics (yes, it matters!),
how to find the stitch in the row below on both sides of the work, and
how to use the slide maneuver. This class will get you off to a good
start—you won’t want to stop, and you'll go home with all you need to
know to make this 2-color scarf.
