    If you’ve ever heard about brioche from other knitters, you might be feeling intimidated and as if it’s too difficult for you. Or maybe you’ve tried it before, and the pattern you used made you more confused than when you started. I feel you, because I’ve been there too! But, I’m convinced that with the right support, you can absolutely knit brioche… and love it.


    The techniques used for this brioche cowl include brk, brp, k, and sl1yo. The tutorials for all of these stitches are linked in the pattern, as well as a one color brioche tutorial and a two color brioche in-the-round tutorial!


    All of my patterns include clear, step-by-step instructions and linked video technique tutorials that walk you through the pattern with confidence. I am also available for pattern support if you have questions.
