Looped over or draping long, this brioche-rib cowl looks stunning in Malbrigo's Rios. Rios is a hand-dyed yarn in amazing colors and this cowl takes two contrasting colors to create a reversible piece. It is superwash Merino, so it is machine washable, soft, and warm. The cowl is worked flat and then sewn into a circle. The technique is challenging, with two rows worked, one color each row, to make a single row of finished knitting and the pattern repeats four finished rows throughout. Stitches are picked up and worked at the edge for the easy edging. The cowl measures 6.5" wide x 48" around. It can be machine washed and dried flat. Designed by Emily Whitted.
The kit includes Malabrigo Book 10 and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- 40" circular needle in US size 8 OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE
