The graphic cowl and scarf are knit flat with two-color brioche stitch. The I-cord CO and BO edges are sewn together with a half twist for the moebius cowl. Choose a pop of color for one side and stripe contrast colors for the background or knit a simple two-color version. The short pattern motif is easy to memorize and fun to knit.
