Pop Twizzle is an oversized seamless cowl with a chevron lace edge detail, knit using the two-color brioche stitch. This special Umbra yarn from Infinite Twist creates the most beautiful brioche fabric, with a density and drape that are quite magical.
This cowl is worked in the round using a circular needle, from the bottom up. There are no seams. Two-color brioche creates a gorgeous reversible fabric! So now, it’s like you have two cowls! The pattern is easy to modify by adding or omitting lace repeats, too!
Skill level: Intermediate. Basic two color brioche skills are not required, but are recommended. Techniques used: knitting in the round, brioche knit (brk), brioche purl (brp), brioche increases and decreases.
This pattern is both written and charted, for your convenience!
If you have not yet tried knitting brioche, fear not!! This cowl may look complicated, but the twists and turns are made by increasing and decreasing the brioche stitches and are so much fun once you learn! This pattern is written so that ANYONE can knit it, with photo tutorials and links to videos teaching the techniques. I also highly recommend visiting Nancy Marchant’s website: www.briochestitch.com. She is the best teacher for this amazing stitch!!
