TT42 Easy Better-than-brioche Scarf
Elise Duvekotâ€™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 startâ€”you wonâ€™t want to stop, and you'll go home with all you need to know to make this 2-color scarf.
Please bring a small amount of #4 (worsted-weight)
yarn in a light or bright color for your practice piece AND 5 or 5.5mm/US 8 or 9 circular needle
