New Technique Day

I've had the Knitting Brioche book for a while now and have been wanting to try it for the longest time. I especially love two-color reversible brioche. SO...I figured since I just finished my first Red Heart Special Olympics 2012 scarf yesterday (pictures to follow later) that now is a good time to learn how to knit brioche. As I was crocheting the RHSO scarf I was thinking how a scarf in the red and blue would be cool in the reversible brioche. Basically new technique = new scarf. Love it! :)

Here's a beautiful sample from Knitterbelle of what I'll be knitting.

Wish me luck! I'm off to try this. You could hear screaming later. LOL

So I have spent the afternoon knitting and ripping. :(

I have found the book instructions and online instructions to be convaluted!! I watched soundless youtube videos and can see it done BUT it just wasn't clicking. ::sadness::

I did some more searching and have found a link to what could be the oldest reversible brioche scarf pattern online by Borealis Yarns but posted by Rebecca back in 2005.  This pattern MAKES SENSE!! It's in English. LOL 

This is the link you want to use for the 2-color Reversible Brioche Scarf!!


  1. I'm sorry to hear the book wasn't helping. It was written by a friend who really knows Brioche inside and out. She came to town to teach a class on it for us. She had some gorgeous jackets down in all kinds of brioche patterns. Some had 3 colors! Can't wait to see what yours does. I have plans to do her capelet in Wrap Style.

  2. I <3 <3 <3 the book. I just found the instructions difficult. It was like they made it harder than it really is. There's several patterns in the book I can't wait to try now that I understand it. :)
