During a trip to Germany, we had almost a two-hour visit with the owner of Atelier Zitrón who after talking about the quality fibers they used, walked us into a showroom full of yarn spun especially for hand-knitting. Three skeins of Opus 1 yarn have been in my stash since. The skeins come infused with aloe vera and jojoba.
When I came across the Cabled Brioche Stitch Scarf pattern, I knew it would showcase the vibrant colors of the yarn.
The brioche pattern creates a nice loft and the cabling adds layers and depth.
The rich colors add yet another element of interest.
This one might be a knit gift to me.

I’m not a knitter and I don’t think I’d’ve looked at that yarn twice in the skein form. But it’s absolutely gorgeous as you knitted it!
I loved the colors but wasn’t sure what that yarn would become. I really wanted to showcase the colors and this pattern really did it for me.
Beautiful! It looks so lovely and squishy!
Thanks. It is! And the yarn is so soft. It’s a pleasure to wear!
Beautiful. If it were me would have to keep it for myself!
I may just do that.
Beautiful and I love how you’ve displayed the scarf.
Oh, thanks. It was a beautiful day outside and the sun was just right.
Beautiful! I love broiche.
It was very easy to knit, even with the cabling.
What lovely wool and colours! Love the pattern you used for the scarf.
Thanks. It’s a free pattern so just follow the link to get it.
Ooooh I love that scarf so much! What lovely colourways that yarn has…
And yes it should absolutely be a present for yourself; what’s the use of us always knitting for others if we don’t get to choose the pick of the crop (i.e. our most favourite designs) for ourselves?
And yes, I have totally saved this pattern in my own Ravelry account; thanks very much for posting the link! ;o)
So glad you liked it! The pattern is easier that I thought and really showcases the yarn.
Gorgeous colours and beautifully made!
Thank you! I wish I had more of that yarn.
