This piece can be worn as a scarf. Or tie one end along the side and it becomes a poncho. Your choice as to which side you want to feature; the solid colour or the stripes.
Light and airy, while at the same time rich and delicious, that description
fits the Brioche Stitch as well as its namesake, the brioche pastry.
And just like its namesake, its variations are endless. To make it more interesting,
I have introduced a variety of colours as contrast colours which show as stripes
along one side of the scarf, while the main colour dominates the other side.
