Basic Skills Necessary:
- Provisional CO, knit, purl, yarn-overs.
Made in chunky weight merino, Easy Brioche Cowl knits fast and is very warm. It is worked sideways, so you can decide how wide you want it as you work, and its two ends are knitted together at the back - no sewing is needed.
9 sts and 12 rows = 10 cm/ 4 in, in brioche st, measured unblocked. Gauge is not crucial in this pattern.
