The beautiful stitch textures of two-color garter stitch and two-color brioche stitch complement each other so well. When working Bonfire, you will gradually deconstruct the leaf structure just as if it were burning. The gradated hot to ash color adds to the drama.

This cowl is worked in the round.

I used one 75 gr cake of Ombré grande Flare for the light color and two 50 gr cakes of Sport Charcoal for the dark color. The cowl weighs 133 grams.
