Nostalgia Brioche Cowl

I don't know whether it's because of the colours or of the pattern, but with its wavy edge this cowl reminds me somehow of "olden days" - that's why I called it "Nostalgia". It's a brioche pattern - it's reversible and both sides are attractive.

The finished cowl measures 22 cm in height and 116 cm in circumference.

Materials:
  • 80 grams of worsted weight yarn Colour A
  • 80 grams of worsted weigh yarn in Colour B
  • 4.5 mm circular knitting needles
  • 12 stitch markers
  • a tapestry needle (to weave in ends)

Techniques:
I used the terminology (brioche notation) from briochestitch.com.
However, here are some short (!) explanations in my own words. If these are too short, please refer to the original link.
  • brsskpsso = slip 1 stitch (i.e. two loops), brk2tog (i.e. 3 loops), psso -> decrease by 2 stitches
  • brk3tog = bkr2tog, return stitch to left needle and pass next stitch over -> decrease by 2 stitches
  • brkyobrk = bark 1 stitch (and don't slip it off the left needle), yo, and bark the same stitch again -> increase by 2 stitches
  • sl1yof = slip 1 stitch while doing a yarn over -> stitch that's not knitted but just slipped in the brp-round
  • yfsl1yo = put yarn in front and slip 1 stitch while doing a yarn over -> stitch that's not knitted but just slipped in the brk-round

  1. You are simply awesome! I love all the patterns especially those "complex" and "irregular" ones. What a change from the "normal" :)
