Twists and turns and crossed paths intersect and split apart. The traveling stitches (small cables) on this brioche cowl form a diamond emblem on one side. The opposite side displays the simple stripes created by the brioche stitch. Make one for yourself then switch the colors and make a coordinating cowl as a gift for someone special.
