Brioche stitch creates a thick, squishy and warm fabric that’s perfect for scarves. When you knit a scarf in the standard way though, the rows are just too short! Our solution is to turn the scarf on its side and knit it from side-to-side. The rows are very long but there are very few of them.
Yarn kit includes 4 skeins of Nua Sport yarn (2 in each of your chosen colour) and a cotton project bag.

Add-on pattern option available below.
The scarf is cast on with the two-colour Italian cast-on method, alternatively the two-colour long-tail cast-on method could be used. The brioche pattern is then worked, with each side being worked twice, first in the light colour and then in the dark colour. The scarf is completed with the tubular cast-off method, or the sewn cast off could be used if you worked the two-colour long-tail cast on at the start.

All our yarn kits come with the yarn needed to complete the project plus a project bag.
You will find two add-on options on the yarn kit pages; one for the pattern and where available a second option of a project workshop. Project workshops come with the pattern so it is not necessary to include both add-ons.
We have kept yarn kits separate from the pattern so that you don't need to purchase the pattern if you want an extra yarn kit. It also keeps the option open for you to purchase through Ravelry instead if you wish.
