The bougainvillea is a highly fragrant shrub-like vine with masses of white flowers surrounded by distinctive pink bracts which give the flowers the name “Paperflower” and is the name I have chosen for this brioche stitch scarf in two colors. I have used variegated hand dyed sock yarn in 100 % wool for my main color and a solid, darker contrasting color. The leaves tend to have a three dimensional rounded shape at first but flatten after a few days. The scarf has added interest on the reverse as the lines of the contrasting color do not exactly match the front but rather show up as a distinctive pattern of leafy lines. Brioche stitch in two colors is fun to learn. The texture is similar to ribbing but it has added volume because the stitches are arranged in an arch. This makes it very cosy indeed. I have knitted the scarf with a neat selvedge edge.
