Your brioche adventure starts here!

This is the cowl that teaches the basics of 2-color brioche in the most delightfully intuitive way.

After simple set-up rounds, you’ll alternate rounds of brioche knit and brioche purl, combining these simple stitches with slipped stitches and yarnovers in a rhythm that quickly becomes muscle memory. It’s so fun!

And the reward is the snappiest neckwarmer around. Beware of friends and family trying to take it off your neck (and add them to your holiday gift list.)
