Sure, you may say that 2-color brioche stitch cowls have been done… but we say, Never before with an i-cord edging!
So long sloppy little garter edge, and hello sturdy and skillful border that makes your brioche stitches proud!
Also, this cowl uses surprisingly little yarn. In the sample knit, there was enough yarn left over from each skein to make a second cowl, just an inch shorter than the first!
This is a great pattern for intermediate level knitters with the following skills: Familiarity with two-color brioche stitch knitting is a plus, though not required, as we spell it out in fine detail in the pattern. You must be able to knit in the round, knit an i-cord, and work the knitted cast-on for just a few stitches. (We are available by email/convo to help you or direct you to a great tutorial, if you are unfamiliar with any of the above techniques.) The pattern is for women’s one-size-fits-all.
