Two-Color Syncopated Brioche

I bought 2 skeins of Cascade Eco Duo from my local yarn shop with the intention of knitting a One Stitch Below Scarf. When I swatched the pattern, I wasn't happy with the results so...I dug out my Knitting Brioche book and came up with this. This yarn is super yummy soft (70% alpaca and 30% merino) and it turned out spectacular. The syncopated brioche stitch yields a reversible garment with a fabulous color play. This brioched piece will be a neckwarmer for the Kentuck Art Show.

When I was on the Stitches South group on Ravelry, one of the topics was suggestions for classes for Stitches South 2012. I suggested a Brioche knitting class with Nancy Marchant. Maybe.....!!
