Breezy Beginner Brioche Knit Along
Introducing "Breezy", a long, lacy, and beautiful scarf created in the twisted brioche stitch pattern. Don't know brioche? That's ok! This knit along will be an excellent way for you to learn. Best of all, it's a one skein project!

The Right Yarn
For Breezy, I wanted a yarn that was colorful, soft and bouncy. I found the perfect fiber, Freia Fibers Refined Fingering yarn! Freia Fibers handpaints are beautifully colored yarns with gradient hues that produce ombre color shifts that are unmatched for visual appeal. Pair that with the bounce of merino (70%) and the softness of silk (30%) and "Refined" is an all- around winner. Freia is easy care too. You can hand wash and flat dry.
