Mouette Scarflette: An M Club Bonus Pattern!

I've been loving the Brioche stitch for quite a while... and somewhere deep in the heart of last winter I decided it was time to try to figure out how to incorporate beads into it! I decided it would be a great "extra" pattern for this year's M Club as I love to teach something new in the club, and this is definitely new!
 
Mouette is a two-color beaded Brioche scarflette is inspired by the Brioche Gull Stitch in Nancy Marchant’s book, Knitting Fresh Brioche. Nancy was a great supporter while I figured this stitch out and even sent me her chart symbols so I didn't have to recreate them! Thanks Nancy!
Mouette means gull in French and this elegant little piece certainly deserves a sophisticated name, especially once you see what a fun challenge it is to knit. I (not so) secretly refer to this as my “anti-Alzheimer’s” design as mastering all the skills involved uses ALL of your brain power, which we all know is healthy for our minds : )!
But don’t worry… I’ve given lots of tips and tricks in the notes section (and a 25 minute exclusive video) to help you become a Mouette Master! And as always, the beading is optional!
Mouette is knit with Bare Naked Wools Stone Soup Fingering and two indie dyer sock yarns, Gynx Yarn Merino Sock and Spun Right Round Superwash Sock 80/20. I love the juxtaposition of the wooly natural hand of the Stone Soup with the hand-dyes. The texture and color play beautifully off of each other! These yarns were sent to my M Club members, one mini-skein in each of the first three packages... the final package had the beads and so they are all set to knit Mouette with me!
Mouette Scarflette is a bonus pattern in 2015's M Club... it will be released as an individual pattern available for download in August 2016. Enrollment for 2016's M Club will open in September. Sign up for my mailing list if you want to join in!
