To teach brioche knitting I knitted a scarf with a simple pattern. It changes from a regular knit/purl ribbing into brioche and back to the ribbing. This from a wave-like pattern, without changing stitch number or needle size.
One of my neighbors here in Hiyoshi is a very talented carpenter. He designs and builds interior for churches around Japan. Over the time he has helped me, whenever I needed some wooden pieces for my spinning wheel, knitting needles or other items. As he never charges me anything I wanted to give him something to say ‘Thank you’. Last weekend I knitted him a scarf from some soft alpaca yarn. I hope he likes it.
The scarf is knitted with 4mm needles. I casted on 48 stitches and used 150g of yarn. The pattern is a drop stitch rib, which knits very quickly, but looks quite intriguing. I charted the pattern. You can donwload it as a pdf file here. As he might uses it during work, I didn’t add any fringes, which might get in his way. So I used an I-cord cast-off.
