Biased Brioche Cowl

I like to experiment with my knitting and to combine techniques. This time, I wanted to try out short rows in combination with two color brioche. The result is a comfortable piece with a squishy texture that is perfect for autumn and winter.
This cowl starts with a provisional cast on, is knitted flat and finished with grafting in garter stitch.

The pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry here.

  • about 130 grams of fingering weight yarn in main color (MC) – I used Wollmeise Pure – colorway “Ballerina”
  • about 60 grams of fingering weight yarn in contrast color (CC) – I used a speckled yarn by Lanartus
  • scrap yarn and a crochet hook for provisional CO
  • 3.5 mm knitting needles - I used circulars, but straight needles will do as well
  • a tapestry needle to weave in ends

Gauge and Size
In garter stitch 10 ridges (i.e. 20 rows) gave 5 cm in height, 11 stitches gave 5 cm in width. This was measured on a blocked piece.
The finished cowl measures about 27 cm wide, and measures about 130 cm in circumference.

To finish this cowl, you need the following skills
  • Provisional Cast-On
  • Short Rows with Wrap and Turn
  • Two Color Brioche
  • Grafting in Garter Stitch
