If you love the look of two-color brioche but are intimidated by brks and brps, this design is for you! It applies the easier technique of “knit below” to obtain brioche fabric with very little effort. No previous experience with brioche knitting is needed.

The cowl is worked seamlessly in the round and is reversible. Top-down construction allows size adjustment for a perfect fit and the added option of working a capelet version.

The placement of the decorative double increases produces a different appearance of the cowl front when the cowl is given a quarter-turn. The spreading ribs on the cowl bring to mind a colorful sea anemone clinging to a rock under the ocean.

The cowl uses one skein each of MC and CC.To make both this cowl and its companion piece Unbrioched Hat, an additional skein of MC is needed.
