I was in dire need of a cowl that can be thrown on while leaving the house & basically look good with any outfit while still being functional and warm, so I decided to create one! This fluffy goodness is knit in a syncopated brioche stitch, and while brioche can be intimidating I promise that this is such an easy, repeated pattern that its suitable for knitters who have never even attempted brioche before. Enjoy!

NOTES
For brioche knitting, just remember that the yo always works together with the stitch it is wrapped over.
I worked this scarf up in one color, but you could easily work two (or multiple) color brioche by switching up Y1 and/or Y2.
Although this cowl is reversible, I reccommend marking a right side just to keep your rows straight.
The edges may look a little funky as you are working them, but the crochet edging will whip them into shape! The edging is worked in order to give a little extra support to the sides while still preserving their elasticity.
