The Aspen Leaf Brioche Cowl features a garland of syncopated brioche aspen leaves on its edge, just enough to make a sweet statement on this brioche rib knit. It’s knit flat in fingering weight yarn for a lightweight yet cozy accessory.

The cowl requires 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn in contrasting colors.

Gauge is not critical, but it can affect size and yardage requirements. Work for a gauge that gives you a pleasant fabric, not floppy nor tight.

Choose your size, closer fitting or a bigger swoop, both can be rolled a bit at the neck to show a pop of contrast rib.
