Create lofty, textured fabric using Brioche Stitch, which resembles ribbing but with much more depth and many more possibilities. We'll knit a swatch (which can be the start of a scarf) in basic, one-color Brioche Stitch. Then we'll start a cowl in two-color Brioche Stitch creating a richly textured and reversible fabric.
