Fox Pointe Scarf
Fox Pointe Scarf
A two-color brioche knit pattern that gives the appearance of little fox faces!
The pattern is written for both Fingering and DK weight yarn. It is meant to be a two skein project using two different colors. However! You could also use minis for a gradient main color with a contrasting second color!
The pattern includes written instructions for a regular scarf finish as well as an option for making it into an infinity scarf.
Fingering Weight: 64 in (162 cm) by 7.5 in (19 cm)
DK Weight: 58 in (147 cm) by 5.5 in (14 cm)
Note on finished measurements: Due to the nature of the stitch, brioche does stretch. Because of this, measurements can change, and the scarf can stretch with wear.

Note on Construction
This scarf starts off with a two-color Italian cast-on. Next, there are a total of three set-up rows, one is a tubular row to help stabilize the cast-on followed by two set-up rows to prepare you for brioche knitting.
The body of the scarf is knit up in an 18 stitch by 8 row repeatable pattern, plus an extra stitch on each end to create a selvage edge.
The brioche pattern involves both increases and decreases which balance so the stitch count does not change throughout.
Once you’ve reached the end, the scarf is bound off in an Italian Bind Off. From there you have the choice of sewing the ends together to make an infinity scarf, or you can leave them separate.
