"Autunno (Autumn in Italian) is a multifunctional piece that can be worn as a cowl, an infinity scarf or as a vest. And it is reversible, too! So it has multiple ways you can wear it. Autunno is worked in a dynamic two-color brioche pattern that makes the fabric undulate, mimicking the movements of falling leaves blown by the wind. Brioche stitch worked flat is a little complex to handle at first, but has the big pro of having 3 rest rows for every “pattern” row. This design requires attention, but the result is rewarding!"

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I love the style of this pattern and the fact you can wear it several ways. I am taking a class in brioche soon so hopefully the instructions will make more sense to me. I have saved the pattern because I really want to make it. The instructions do have a video which is helpful. You do have to pay more attention making this but in the end you will have an unique piece. Thank you.

I love the versatility of this piece. Totally gorgeous and feminine. Lovely.
