Blue Brioche Cowl

      No Comments on Blue Brioche Cowl

I decided to make a cowl to match my headband. I have been wanting to make one in brioche stitch with a variegated yarn and see what happened, or even possibly two variegated yarns…

I used King Cole, Merino Blend DK in Petrol (926), and James C Brett Marble Chunky MC52

... But I went with the bottom anyway. Mwahaha power! I just felt since the blue was thinner it had better definition this way round, and the grey changes to turquoise further along the wool.

I cast on 90 stitches in the plain blue and knit 4 rounds, I then joined the variegated yarn and knit the brioche stitch, I used the tutorial from Purl Soho for how to do it.

I knitted 5 rounds of straight stockinette stitch then joined the variegated yarn into the mix and then knitted 28 ’round’ one round in each colour.

At the end I knit 5 rounds of colour B then cast off using Icelandic cast off.

Check out the Ravelry listing here. Not that there is much more information there, But I have actually filled out all the information and put pictures in 🙂
