What are you most proud of? I haven't forgotten how to knit!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use lifelines and stitch markers, especially at the beginning. Allow yourself plenty of time ... this is not a quick weekend project. But it's definitely worth the effort! I love the cushy feel of the fabric, and the pattern is lovely. A variegated yarn adds interest.

Oh, Is it very difficult to knit? Besides, I love its colour and I do want to learn how to make it. You did a great job!

Thank you! I think it is not too difficult to knit, but it takes some time to get used to the stitch. Nancy's instructions and the videos are very clear, so I just followed along.

Thank you for the excellent tips on lifelines and stitch markers! Looks beautiful; an inspiration. I just finished my first swatch, and about to start the chapter on this scarf!

Thanks! It's really not difficult once you get going, but the lifelines give me peace of mind.And I've used them more then once when I wasn't paying attention and screwed up my stitches. Good luck with your scarf!

Thank you! I think you should try doing the one-color sample piece first and then the Jacki scarf. That is a good way to get very comfortable with brioche.

Oops ... I meant to say more! I am not a longtime knitter. I think the Alex scarf is very complicated. I am eager to try it now, but I needed to make the Jacki scarf first to be comfortable.

I hope you will keep trying!

Fabiola, the pattern is included with Nancy Marchant's class, Explorations in Brioche Knitting: http://www.craftsy.com/class/explorations-in-brioche-knitting/145 It's the one-color Jacki scarf. I took the class because I really wanted to learn how to make the two-color Alex scarf (that's the yellow and green scarf in my projects). I hadn't knitted for several years, so it was good for me to work through the one-color scarf first. It's very cushy and warm! The class is great!
