This is a GREAT first brioche project.

Knit in the round, this pattern creates a fluffy, enhanced ribbing in two colors that brioche is so well known for. The supersoft Morehouse Merino 2-ply yarn adds additional loft, making this cowl… well, buoyant!

Choose 2 colors of Morehouse Merino 2-strand, one skein of each. Contrasting colors enhance the design, more similar colors mute it and are still lovely.

Did we mention it’s completely reversible?

Use the correct needles to obtain the proper gauge, though gauge isn’t absolutely crucial for this project. The finished Cowl as written will have a finished circumference of about 26” and 10” in length. You can easily modify it to make it bigger or longer if desired.
