People often ask me if my patterns are good for a knitter that is new to brioche. I try to make all of my patterns beginner friendly but this set is designed especially for beginners that want to learn brioche or experienced knitters that just want to knit a fast and warm hat and cowl! PDF includes instructions for both the hat and the cowl. You can also watch a video tutorial on this technique here: https://youtu.be/sgqeOivoPS4
