Straightaway is a brioche cowl with a one- and two-color option that is knitted flat and closed with either two or three buttons. It requires about 100g of worsted-weight yarn and is the perfect way to learn brioche if you’re intimidated by two-color projects or brioche in the round! If you’re a brioche pro, you’ll be able to make this comfy, lightweight accessory faster than you can say “Winter is Coming.”
