Advanced Squishilicious! Knitting the Willow Moon Brioche Cowl
Wrap yourself in the warm, woolly embrace of this cowl/shawl hybrid! Willow Moon is an intermediate level brioche design with a motif reminiscent of willow leaves. It is knit flat, on the bias with a 2-color I-cord edging and sewn together at the back. The stitches used include brkyobrk, brsssk and brk3tog. You will also learn how to do a provisional cast-on without a crochet hook or waste yarn! Class price includes pattern.
This is an intermediate level class. Participants should be confident knitters with prior Brioche experience. Please note that while we will go over the brioche increases and decreases, we will not be swatching them intensely, or teaching introductory brioche. (For an intro to brioche class, check out our Squishilicious class. For a next-steps brioche class, check out our Squishilicious Part Two (Hat) class.)
