Every this-time-of-a-year since I released knitted Meringue Cowl pattern, I receive so many requests for a crochet version. Well, here are several techniques to emulate Brioche knitting, like single crochet worked in back loops for example. But my most favorite method is working in third loop of half double crochet.
So, I wrote a pattern explaining 3rd loop hdc stitch and “tested” it in two pretty simple and such fast to crochet scarf projects. Let me introduce…
Crochet à la Brioche
A Brioche (so called from its resemblance in shape to the well known French cake of that name) may be as easily worked in crochet as in knitting. With a little trick you can transform regular half double crochet stitches into knit-like stitches, that are also very elastic!
There are two options of style and yarn to choose from! These reversible soft ribs will hug your neck and keep it toasty warm all fall, winter and into spring. There will be few times you won’t find an excuse to wear your à la Brioche Scarf!
Treat yourself and your loved ones with the luxurious feel of these scarves this delightful winter! Opt for bamboo or cotton blends for fall and spring accessories.
A perfect gift idea too!
