Salish Sighs is a cowl knit flat in two-color brioche stitch with an Italian two-color cast on and Italian bind off which provides a beautiful matching finished edge on both ends. Using Independence by Spincycle Yarns you achieve lovely color transitions which, in addition to the Breeze brioche motif, create movement and depth to the soft and sexy brioche fabric that gives delightful loft and warmth. Increases and Decreases form the Breeze brioche motif and the length is customizable for a scarf option.

Size: The size is customizable by adding repeats of the Breeze Motif to the width, or just continuing to knit for a longer scarf (you would need an additional skein of each color for this).

Finished Measurements: Cowl - 30.5” long by 9.5 inches wide, 78cm x 24 cm.

Yarn & Additional Supplies Two skeins of different colorways Spincycle Independence Yarn and one packet two Jül Oval Latches for the closure. For a totally different mood to your cowl try using Hedgehog Fibres Chunky for a fun rainbow effect; your needle size and gauge will be a little different, so swatch it!

Yardage: 400 Yards Total (200 per skein). I had some left, so you have enough for slight gauge difference, but plan that you will need it all, just in case.

Gauge: In Pattern 23 stitches x 20 rows = 4” (10cm) Check your gauge.

Needles: 24” size 7 circular needle. I knit with Addi-Clicks circulars. Since I knit loosely, I used size 6 tips with a 24” cord.

Notions: 3 Stitch Markers, Tapestry Needle

Salish Sighs pictured here is made with Fallen Leaves and Frosty Nights colorways of Independence from Spincycle Yarn. For more information on brioche stitch, I recommend Nancy Marchant’s beautiful resource book, Knitting Fresh Brioche.
