Worsted Brioche Bandana Cowl

Not only will the Worsted Brioche Bandana Cowl keep you warm and cozy, it is also a fantastic project for learning 2-color brioche knitting. You begin knitting the cowl in-the-round, then switch to flat knitting to finish it. So, we will cover both types of knitting 2-color brioche in one project!

This KAL is the 3rd in our series of Brioche KALs. Each KAL builds on the skills of the previous one. If you are an inexperienced brioche knitter, we recommend that you start with the Basic Brioche Headband. It’s a quick project to teach you the basic brioche stitches. Then knit Daniel’s Hat, the 2nd project in our brioche series.

It is not a prerequisite, but if you have never knit brioche before, we STRONGLY recommend at least knitting the Basic Brioche Headband prior to starting this KAL.

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Knit 2-color brioche flat and in-the-round
  • Cast on for a smooth, stretchy edge
  • Knit 5 common brioche stitches
  • Read brioche stitches to aid in avoiding mistakes
  • Use a lifeline so you never have to rip all your work out again 

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and knit in-the-round prior to starting this KAL. 

  • Worsted Brioche Bandana Cowl pattern (Purchase the pattern on Ravelry or Etsy)
  • Worsted weight yarn, 110 yards of color A and 100 yards of color B
  • US 8 needles, or the size you normally use for knitting worsted weight yarn
    Note: The pattern recommends using 16” circular needles. You could also use 32” or longer circular needles and the magic loop method of knitting in the round.
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needle
