My two recent passions in knitting are brioche and the moebius. I decided to combine the two for a series of patterns that are striking, unique in form, and fun to knit. I named them Vakker, which means “beautiful” in Norwegian. The Vakker Cowl features a moebius cast on, which beautifully highlights both the front and reverse of brioche stitch pattern. You also have the option of a short cable or elongated cable for the stitch pattern.

Special thanks to Nancy Marchant for the inspiring “Narrow Flat Cables” stitch pattern from her incredible book Knitting Fresh Brioche. To learn more about Brioche, visit her website:
