Ribbon Candy combines brioche stitch and intarsia to create a bold, vertical color block effect. The distinct, woven channels of color that result from merging these two techniques will draw the eye and delight the knitter. The cowl begins with an i-cord foundation. Then stitches for the Body are picked along the edge of the i-cord and worked with i-cord edges before ending with an i-cord bind off. Tutorials for working in brioche and intarsia, as well as i-cord, are included with the pattern.
