Worked in two colours, scarf consists of a border of simple brioche stitches the choice of a stockinette, garter or brioche body, making it ideal for new-comers to brioche. Choose bold colours where the simplicity of the pattern allows the yarn to really shine, or more muted colours for an understated but very wearable scarf that will go with everything.
The syncopated brioche stitches give a beautiful texture that remind me of the key springs of the harmonium that my mother plays, leading to the name of this scarf. Other instruments from the same family have lent their names to the companion patterns.
The pattern includes instructions for three different versions of the body of the scarf – stockinette, garter and brioche.
You will require two colours of DK weight yarn, approximately 350m (383yds) of the main colour and approximately 90m (98yds) of the contrast colour for the stockinette or garter body options or 350m (383yds) for the brioche body option.
The pattern has both written instructions and charts. Detailed descriptions and a photo tutorial of the more unusual stitches are also included.
Stitch abbreviations and chart symbols are based on those developed by Nancy Marchant.
