Cushy textured brioche cowls—who doesn’t want one? So why not create your own, using the yarns and colors that look best with your wardrobe? Class begins with learning about tuck stitches and how to read a tuck/brioche chart. Then, working the body of the cowl, in the round, in a stitch pattern that you have selected from an stitchionary of 2-color tuck stitches. You will finish class with the beginning of your own designer cowl and a small stitch dictionary (created exclusively for this class by Nancy) to help you design even more cowls at home.
Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, working in the round, chart reading, basic finishing techniques
