A moire effect is created when two similar, but slightly offset, patterns are overlaid. In this cowl, 2-color brioche mimics that effect; the ribs alternate colors, creating an optical illusion of sorts. When worked with a gradient set of yarns, the colors blend beautifully, although this cowl would be equally striking in 2 contrasting colors. The fabric created is dense and squishy, yet light. Wrapped about your neck, this cowl will keep you warm and cozy even on the coldest winter day!
