*Briolove Scarf* Brioche Knitting Patterns


Briolove is a brioche knitting pattern worked in brioche rib stitch. It is composed of 2 "hearts panels" on the sides and 1 "medallion panel" in the middle. And also on the sides of these panels and between them, 2 brioche knit columns that are zigzagging by repeating the hearts and medallions contours. In the chart all the panels are indicated so that in case you want to modify the pattern it would be easy to do it. In the first 10 minutes of the video I explain more detailed how to modify this chart and in general how to read my charts.

Briolove - Brioche Knitting

Directions:

With main color yarn cast-on: 
1 (pattern repeats) x 22 + 19 symmetry stitches + 2 selvedge stitches = 43 stitches 
If you want to knit a wrap or a blanket, just increase the number of repeats in the formula above.
Work row 1 with main color yarn. After that slide all stitches to the other end of the needles, join contrast color yarn and work row 2 with contrast color yarn.

Row 1 MC: k1, *sl1yo, k1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif.

After each odd row slide stitches to other end of needles, pick-up contrast color yarn and knit the even row.
After each even row turn work, pick-up main color yarn and knit the odd row.

Row 2 CC: sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo; rep from* to last 2 sts, brp1, sl1 wyif.
Note: work the "brkyobrk" sts from previous row as: sl1yo, p1, sl1yo
