Ciclamino is an easy and colorful cowl worked using brioche knitting in the round, both in one color and in two colors. Changing the background and the foreground color a sort of “fading” effect is achieved

This is a beginner brioche project, it is actually a “didactic” pattern to learn how to work brioche in the round.
