Diamond Lattice Cowl

Two-colour brioche is a marvellous technique. It creates a lovely, squishy texture that is comforable to wear and it can be used to create quite intricate geometric patterns.

This cowl is knitted in the round with diamond shapes in a lattice pattern. 


 



The pattern is available via

  • row-by-row instructions

If you want to knit this pattern, you should already know how to knit two-colour brioche in the round.


You need the following materials to knit this cowl:

  • about 260 to 300 grams of DK weight yarn (in total) – in two colours: I used two (semi-)solid yarns: Supertwist by Nurturing Fibres (link to the yarn's Ravelry page):
    • as LY I used light grey (colorway “Driftwood”) 
    • as DY I used pink (colorway “Ouma's Quilt”) 
  • 4.5 mm knitting needles – straight with double points or circulars
  • 22 stitch markers – one of them different
  • a tapestry needle for weaving in ends
