Gateways Cowl

When it's not really cold, but still a bit chilly, a thick scarf may be a bit too much. So a lightweight cowl that fits around the neck is the perfect accessoire. 

This cowl is knitted in the round in two-colour brioche. Two-colour brioche is a marvellous technique. With two contrasting colours you can create gorgeous effects and pattern. I especially love it, when brk-stitches cross and a lattice effect is created. The stitch used to do this can be combined in many ways. With this cowl it is combined with plain two-colour brioche to knit a diamond pattern at and offset.  

The finished cowl measures 61 cm in circumference and 29 cm in height. Using Lace weight wool and wool/silk blend, the finished piece weighs less than 50 grams.

The pattern PDF is available via

The pattern PDF is 8 pages long and contains:

  • row-by-row pattern instructions
  • a chart of a pattern repeat
  • photo tutorial for brioche stitch that creates the lattice effect
To knit this cowl you should have a basic knowledge of knitting two-colour brioche.

To knit this cowl you will need the following materials

  • about 400 metres (in total) of Lace weight yarn – in two colours. I used:
