Two Color Brioche Cowl

Brioche knitting produces thermal, ribbed textured fabric. Two-color brioche knitting results in a stunning work of contrasting solid colors. Choosing a variegated and solid mix enhances the flow of color in delightful ways. Knitting the two color brioche cowl as a moebius also creates a unique knitting experience, making the color play even more dynamic.

Two pattern versions are included, the moebius or infinity cowl, and two length choices in this pattern; one is approximately 8” deep x 30” in circumference, and the other is approximately 6” deep x 60” in circumference. Gauge: 3 sts./in. The larger circumference size instructions are written in parentheses.

Size 8, 47” circular knitting needles are used for both moebius versions.

Size 8, 32” circular knitting needles are used for both infinity versions.

Note: Although I’ve listed the specific yarn used in these samples, ANY worsted weight yarn will work fine with these patterns. Smooth strands will show both colors the best. Have fun!

Thank you to Jenni for modeling!
