I first saw the brioche stitch many years ago in Pam Allen’s Brioche Bag pattern when I picked up Lynne Barr’s Reversible Knitting: 50 Brand-New, Groundbreaking Stitch Patterns. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to play with the stitch in the nerdy arena of a very iconic scarf belonging to a time traveling doctor. And as 2017 is the year that the doctor gets a new look, it seems a fitting year to release this pattern! I took the famous scarf and folded it in half, then tesseracted it together using the brioche stitch. It takes time to complete (more than 6 years, in my case, because I am lazy…), but I promise squishy satisfaction!
To knit this scarf, you will need: Approximately 7 balls with 200 meters/219 yards each of worsted weight yarn; 1 each in purple, tan, red, copper, yellow, grey, and olive colours (I used Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted in 121 Morello, 104 Toffee, 106 Rust, 132 Buttercup, 135 Papaya, 111 Granite, and 128 Hazel.) 4mm circular needles with a 40 cm/16 inch cable (size 6 US) tapestry needle to weave in ends
Gauge: 18 stitches and 22 rows = 10 cm/4 inches in brioche stitch
