Wavy Brioche Cowl

Don't be intimidated by the flowing and distinctive pattern in this cowl. It uses only the very most basic brioche stitches. And a clever technique makes every round a knitwise round - all brks and no brps.
It's perfect for a beginning briocher, and fun for anyone who enjoys the pleasures of brioche knitting.

Add a twist in the cast-on for an infinity cowl that, when wrapped double, untwists to lie smooth showing only the right side of the fabric.
You will love knitting this cushy beauty.
