My first try at brioche!!

This cowl will be 1 of 3 teacher appreciation gifts. I have yet to decide whether or not if this will be gifted at Christmas or end of the school year.

Also, super excited that I finally have a project to use up this Chroma Worsted with! Just hope it comes out looking good!

Brioche is kicking my butt! Mind you I was trying to knit this and catch up on Walking Dead…not really a mindless knit until I get the hang of which colour is for which round! So I’ve had to tink back about 4 times now, each time almost back to the beginning of the round! Yikes! Pay attention Dude!

November 14, 2015:
Cowl currently measures 4.5”, another 5.25” to go…at least I got it through to my head that the brown yarn is for knitting and the blues/greens is for purling - which makes a HUGE difference as I now no longer have to tink back over 200 sts every second row.

- could’ve gone up a needle size or two.

Leftovers from second balls: 58g of Fossil, 71 of Pool Party.
