    The town where I grew up used to be well known for making house bricks. Consequently, there is some fantastic brickwork in the town, it’s not unusual to see one house with three or four differently coloured bricks.

    The patterns that the bricks are arranged in all have different names, some are for strength, some are purely decorative. When alternating rows of bricks are laid long side on and short side on, it’s called English Bond.

    This cowl design replicates that pattern using slipped stitches, only one colour is used at a time.
