"Paperflower" Two-colour Brioche Stitch Scarf

The idea for this scarf came from my daughter who hand dyed the pink variegated yarn and asked me to knit a scarf for her. She chose the red background colour and so the "Paperflower Scarf" came to be. 

The paperflower is the name given to the pink or red bracts around the bougainvillea flower and which I think is similar to the patterning on this scarf. 

I decided on a two-colour brioche stitch pattern with a selvedge edge which creates a neat effect. 

The reverse is not identical because the left and right slanting decreases used are not reversible. 

In this photo I hope you can see that there is a leaf pattern on the reverse but it is different to the front. 

The pattern is available to buy on craftsy: Paperflower scarf pattern

or in my ravelry shop: Knitting Emporium on ravelry

The techniques used are relatively simple. I have made a series of youtube videos covering the techniques used in this pattern.
