This cowl uses a skein of gorgeous rainbow indie-dyed yarn in contrast with a neutral navy to make a beautiful double-sided reversible cowl. Either side of the cowl looks fantastic, and the garter blocks help break up the ribbed look and add pops of the reverse color to each side. As I was knitting it, the squares combined with the rainbow yarn really made me think of the squares of light thrown by a disco ball. My Spotify happened to be playing The Bay City Rollers as I was designing this, so “Saturday Night” was born. This is a good pattern for brioche beginners to learn the stitch, but the garter blocks keep it interesting and fun for those already well-versed in brioche. It can be knit to any length you choose, but I made it long enough to wrap twice around my neck, to keep me extra cosy as I stroll through the city through the autumn and into winter. On a rare mild day, I like to wear it as a single loop, so it drapes like a scarf. Either way, this cowl is sure to be a winter staple. Make it as bold and bright or as neutral and classic as you like, depending on the colors you choose!
