What was your inspiration?
I wanted to do a project with the brioche stitch, which looked very fun and easy. I wanted to knit something for a friend, who chose the yarn. It was perfect for the project, and the scarf turned out wonderfully soft and scrunchy, wide enough to cover the head if the need arises.
What are you most proud of?
The yarn chosen was perfect for this project. It is lightweight, but very soft.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
For interest and variability, chose a slightly bulky but very soft yarn. The brioche stitch uses a lot of yarn, and if you choose a denser yarn, it will weigh you down. The brioche also shows of color variation well, as in this handpainted yarn.
