Get yourself some very chunky or bulky yarn. 6mm/size 10 needles or up. For best results, find something with longish color changes and great color combos, but plain colors — especially so-called “masculine” colors are just as attractive in this pattern. Softness a plus.
Get thee hence to The Purl Bee’s Brioche Stitch Scarf pattern. (It’s free.) Cast on in multiples of two — I’m currently working in Brett’s Marble Chunky on 6mm needles, in a marled colorway of three or four browns, and I cast on 20, and I probably could have gotten away with 18, but this stitch pattern is very fluid and squishy, so I thought 20 would be better.
Marvel at how fast this scarf flies by.
Slightly fancier than just a plain rib, but just as easy, if not easier. Easy, easy, easy. Fast, fast, fast.
That is all.
P.S. No, it’s not all — it occurred to me that I definitely should have cast on 18 instead, so the scarf was symmetrical, rather asymmetrical… Next time, I will, and am thinking of finding an even more bulky yarn to do it in.
