Loosely knit brioche rib in a laceweight yarn is one of my very favourite fabrics, thick, squishy, and warm but incredibly lightweight. the cowl is worked from end to end, beginning and ending with a stockinette tube that is twisted before the ends are grafted together. this half twist is confined to the stockinette section for a simple, interesting detail.
