This brioche knit cowl is worked in the round from the bottom up.

Madrona trees are native to the Pacific Northwest. They have gorgeous peeling bark, shiny leaves, and little berries. This cowl features leaves and optional small bobble-like berries. I knit most of the blue cowl (no berries) while at Madrona Fiber Arts Festival, and the name seems to fit. The green sample has berries on the vertical columns.

The small size uses 100 yards background color, 80 yards main color (shown in blue).

The large size uses 125 yards background color, 100 yards main color (shown in green).

The pattern is 10% off, no coupon needed, through October 19, 2018. Newsletter subscribers will receive a 20% off coupon in the newsletter. Not a subscriber? Sign up here!
