Thanks to everyone for their purchases. We raised $510 for the Barbra Schlifer Clinic.

If you’re using another yarn, 100 yds each of two colours of worsted weight will do very well - make one darker and more solid, and the other bright, fun and variegated.
Sold as part of a kit, this uses 2 55gm skeins - approximately 95 yds each of two colors. The darker colour is called Fierce AF, and the variegated is Feisty Fibres’s own interpretation of Countess-Ablaze’s “If I want exposure I’ll get my tits out” colourway, which was launched as a fundraiser in the UK.

The pattern was part a collaboration with Feisty Fibres, part of the #titsoutcollective. Kits were sold for a month, and proceeds raised were donated to organizations supporting women dealing with situations of violence and abuse, the Nipissing Transition House, and the Barbra Schlifer Clinic.

A quick-knit two-colour brioche cowl. Ideal for a second brioche project – or as a first one if you’re confident, have patience and lots of scrap yarn handy for lifelines. A full explanation of the Brioche stitches is provided. If you’re new to the technique, or just want to build skills, instructions are included for a simpler version.
