The Easy-breezy Brioche Cowl is an introduction to the brioche technique

The cowl comes in two sizes, larger and medium, depending on your preference on fit.

The pattern shifts between a 6mm needle and a 5mm needle to keep the bottom half of the cowl loose, then the top half is knit on smaller needles to create a more rigid fabric.

The pattern is suitable for beginners and you would only need a basic knowledge of knitting for this pattern.
