Nancy, I have to ask you -- did you invent this brioche stitch? I already knew you were brilliant, but after making the scarf (which I had to bring all over the place to show people, I was so amazed by the stitch), I've decided you're a genius. And probably a math genius to boot!

Thanks, fci, but I am not a genius, not even close. Did I invent the stitch patterns that you have made, yes. I really love the look of your Gable Brioche Cowl and find that I wear mine all the time as I do believe you will too.

This is beautiful! I love the geometric look of this, is there a pattern available for it anywhere?

Yes, indeed! It's on Ravelry. Just do a search for "Nancy Marchant" and the Gable Brioche Cowl will come up (it's in blue and white). When you're doing the first few rows, it looks kind of crazy and you might be wondering if you've made some kind of mistake, but it all clears up after about an inch.

Sorry, I meant to give the address in case you weren't familiar with it -- it's ravelry.com
