This scarf combines the fluffiness of brioche with the elegance of lace - and because it’s brioche, it’s reversible.
To knit this scarf you need the following knitting skills:
- knitting brioche (in one color)
- a certain stamina while knitting - this is knitted in lace weight yarn and brioche, i.e. it grows extremely slow

As to the name, the pattern reminded me of a certain type of piped biscuits that are tradional here, called Bärentatzen (which literally translates to bear claws, but American bear claws are a different bakery item). The bottom photo shows Bärentatzen.
