My Big Waves Brioche Cowl

This blog is mainly for people who have been to one of my recent 2-colour Brioche Knitting workshops.

Anyone who hasn’t tried this technique might also find it interesting to look at how the work grows and the kind of fabric that can be produced.

For those who haven’t heard of brioche knitting before, you might be  wondering what on earth I’m talking about,  maybe you would like to know a little bit more, or perhaps you could be interested in attending a workshop. For these reasons, I should probably write another blog about brioche knitting in the future!!

Thank you to all the people who have been along to one of my 2-colour brioche knitting workshops, I am sure that you will all agree that learning to do brioche knitting was quite entertaining.

Last week I was chatting with a lady who was making the cowl following on from the workshop, and she mentioned that it would be good to have photos of the work as it went along so that she knew what it ought to look like.

I thought that this was a splendid idea so I came home, chose some gorgeous colours of the Croft yarn  and cast on a new cowl for myself.

I have knitted the cowl and photographed it at significant points so that you can check your work as you go along if you need to.

I hope that these images will help to give you the confidence that your work is progressing ok or to show any errors that may have occurred.

I have amended the pattern as I realised that I have written the end section incorrectly.

I have sent a PDF with these changes to the person who organised your workshop.

Please ask them to send you a copy or email me directly stating which workshop you attended, and I will send it to you.
