Wavy Brioche

I just had to use this Dr. Seuss quote again for my latest brioche knitting design, because seriously, it you've never knitted brioche, you have got to try it. It is so much fun!

And the results can be very satifying as well.

This beauty is worked flat in one piece, with regular k1-p1 ribbed borders. It starts with a tubular cast-on and finishes with a sewn bind-off, both of which give the scarf a very professional and finished appearance.

I found this a joy to make, and now a joy to wear. It is airy, and light as a cloud.
