These cowls are a great introduction to brioche knitting. Have fun with color and select something bright or high contrast—there are plenty of options within the Cottonwood palette.

The errata on this cowl turned out to be a happy accident, so at the advice of a customer, we’ve decided to include instructions for two versions. Version A reflects the sample photos – the Pearl Brioche has a “v” shape. Version B reflects the happy accident in which the two-color portion has small bars in place of the “v” shape shown on the samples.

In this pattern, all slipped stitches will occur with yarn held in front.
