WiFi Signal Cowl

The WiFi Signal cowl is knitted in the round in two-colour brioche. The stitch pattern was first inspired by traditional japanese Seigaiha pattern (青海波), but when I looked at the finished piece it really reminded me of the symbol for a WiFi Signal.

The cowl is long enough to fit twice around your neck. Because it's two colour brioche it has a lovely squishy texture. 

The knitting pattern is available as a PDF via

The pattern PDF is 9 pages long and contains:

  • row-by-row pattern instructions 
  • charts of a pattern repeat
  • photo tutorials for the following brioche stitches
    • brk2inc
    • brk2Rdec
So to knit this cowl you should have a basic knowledge of knitting two-colour brioche.

The finished piece measures about 20 cm in height and 125 cm in circumference (blocked) – so that it fits twice around my neck. 
To knit this the following materials are needed:
  • a total of 125 grams of fingering weight yarn – about equal amounts of each colour, I used
    • as DY (dark turquois to black): Schoppel Zauberball 2038 Cafe Flair
    • as LY (light beige): Vendita Sock yarn 
  • 3.5 mm circular knitting needles 
  • 6 stitch markers
  • a tapestry needle for weaving in ends
