Brioche stitch creates the most squishable fabric, and when it’s worked in two colors, it looks especially impressive. If you’ve mastered the basics of two-color brioche, why not kick it up a notch by adding some simple brioche increases and decreases?

This cowl incorporates strategically placed increases and decreases to combine a chevron stitch pattern with two-color brioche. The biasing of the fabric naturally pulls the middle of the cowl in for a comfortable fit and results in an attractive wave at the edges.

To knit this pattern, you need to know how to:

  • work in two-color brioche in the round and
  • work basic brioche increases and decreases (explained in pattern).

The brioche pattern is both written and charted.

Tools/notions needed:

  • 16 in./40 cm US size 4 (3.5 mm) circular needle
  • one stitch marker
  • tapestry needle
  • small crochet hook or HandiTool (optional)
