The Basketry Cowl combines 2 color brioche in a basket weave sequence. I knit mine holding The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers: Foxy Lady (Fingering weight) and Mighty Mo (Mohair Lace weight) double throughout. This combination made for a light textural rich cowl. The pattern includes options for both a traditional cowl, and an infinity version.
