Silk Garden Lite Brioche

I had thought we’d be flying out the spring posts by now but, nope… today’s weather has given an old favourite scarf of mine another outing, and it’s one I haven’t blogged about as yet…

I’m sure many of you have seen the, oh, I don’t know, gazillion Noro Striped Scarves on the internets? That link there is just a selction of the favourited ones on Ravelry, all 3017 of them!

This one is just a little twist on that classic, using brioche rib instead of the regular 1×1 rib called for. I was just flicking around You Tube and found the video below… it’s such a quick and easy stitch!

It takes four rows of each colourway to get a similar effect to the classic Noro Scarf and I also went up a needle size to get a better drape in the project 🙂

Do try this stitch – but it should come with a health warning – it’s very addictive!
