Another strikingly lovely brioche design by Lesley Anne Robinson that I simply could not resist casting on myself for this Truly Textural Cowl.
And I am so pleased at how it is turning out, knit in two colorways of Geshi with its loooong color runs, that I just had to put it up here for you as well.
I used colors #8 and #10 and I am delighted. You can pick any two that sing to you and be sure they will meld beautifully.
This page sells the yarn, one ball at a time. So mix and match to your heart's content!
This web page is set up so you can pick your colors of Geshi one at a time (in other words, you need two skeins in two separate colorways to make this cowl).
Please be sure to get the pattern from the designer herself on her Ravelry page here. What we offer is the yarn in 6 color choices, one ball at a time, so you can pick and choose what appeals to you.
Here is what Lesley Anne writes:
I have created this cowl pattern as a great way to learn brioche increases, as well as broaden your horizons with a bit of brioche texture....
This neck warmer cowl is knit in the round, beginning at the top and working down towards the bottom. Just like any brioche pattern, working it in the round is a simple way to learn. I have written this pattern as a great way to introduce yourself to brioche increases, as well as a bit of brioche texture.
The Yarn and Colorways
This is not the same yarn as what Lesley Anne used for her original.
Geshi is composed of 35% Viscose/ 35% Cotton/ 20% Silk/ 10% Wool, with each cake (yes, it is already wound for you) a generous 656 yards/ 200g.
We have six gorgeous colorways you can choose among:
Color #2: Yokosuka: An intriguing combo of golds and a grey that whispers lilac.
Color #3: Akiruno: Blues and violets with some aqua as an unexpected highlight.
Color #4: Ureshino: The color of the forest in full summer, with varying greens bursting through including some pine and teal and spring green as well.
Color #8: Unzen: This is a glorious sunset colorway, with golds and apricots of varying tones and subtleties.
Color #9: Ibara: A delicious blending of fuchsias and pinks.
Color #10: Tomioka: This is a cool mix of varying tones of puple, blue and gray.
