I wanted to design a very simple brioche pattern, and this is the result. If you don't count those "filling" rows 2, 3, 4 then you have only 2 pattern rows to repeat: 3 times row 5, and then 3 times row 17.
Cast-on a multiple of 6 + 3 (symmetry) + 2 (edge)
Row 1: k1, *sl1yo, k1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Row 2, 6, 10, 14, 18, 22, 26: sl1 wyif, *brp1, sl1yo; rep from *, brp1, sl1 wyif
Row 3, 7, 11, 15, 19, 23, 27: k1, *sl1yo, brp1; rep from *, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Row 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28: sl1 wyib *brk1, sl1yo; rep from *, brk1, sl1 wyib
Row 5, 9, 13: k1, sl1yo, brk1, sl1yo, *brkyobrk, sl1yo, brLsl, sl1yo; rep from *, sl1 wyif
Row 17, 21, 25: k1, *sl1yo, brRsl, sl1yo, brkyobrk; rep from *, sl1yo, brk1, sl1yo, sl1 wyif
Repeat only rows: 5 - 28 until reached the desired length of the scarf
Abbreviations:
k - knit
brk - brioche knit
brp - brioche purl
sl1yo - slip 1 with yarn over needle
sl1 wyib - slip 1 purlwise with yarn in back
sl1 wyif - slip 1 purlwise with yarn in front
brkyobrk - brioche knit, yarn over, brioche knit (that in the next row will be knitted as sl1yo, p1, sl1yo)
brLsl - brioche left slant decrease
brRsl - brioche right slant decrease 

If you like to knit by following a chart, here it is for this pattern:
If you want to knit this pattern in the round, hereunder is the chart for you, but please pay attention that in the round 17 you will have to knit a brioche right slant decrease from the 1st stitch and the last 2 stitches. You can see how to do it in this video.

This is incredible looking! Again, I have the same question. Can these be done in the round? I’m mostly interested in making cowls with your lovely patterns, or possibly hats.

The same answer, Nancy ☺: see the chart above. Just like for the textured cable, I added this chart instead of explaining what to do if you want to knit this pattern in the round. I hope it will be clear how to knit that brioche right slant decrease from the 1st stitch and the last 2 stitches in round 17.
