Briochevron Drawstring Tube
This two-color brioche design is knit sideways and sewn together to form a zig zag seam. Pick up stitches along one edge to create a folded hem and insert an I-cord drawstring so you can wear the the tube multiple ways. The squishy briochevron stitch pattern yields a cozy reversible cowl. You can cinch the drawstring for a slouchy hat or fold the brim to display the contrast color.
Finished Measurements: 19” / 48cm circumference after being sewn together, 13” / 33cm wide. The fabric is knit sideways so you can wrap the piece around your head while you knit to get your desired circumference.
