The Leafy Origami Loop Cowl is a 2-color brioche cowl, knit in the round from the bottom up. It features a stitch pattern that falls into mountain and valley folds. This cowl can be knit to the circumference you prefer, from 20″ to 36″, by changing the number of repeats cast on.
The beginning of the round moves forward and backward on several rounds, making this a challenging brioche pattern. The results are worth it! I’ve made several video tutorials to guide you through the increases, decreases, and moving the markers. The stitch pattern is adapted from the Under Dutch Skies stitch pattern in Nancy Marchant’s book, Knitting Fresh Brioche.
Edit: It has been brought to my attention that this cowl design appears to be similar to Nancy Marchant’s Forest Wreath, which was not on my radar. I took a look, and my design has a smaller leaf pattern and different edge treatments. The stitch pattern is based on the Under Dutch Skies stitch pattern in Nancy Marchant’s book, Knitting Fresh Brioche, but is not the same.
Cowl requires 170 (190) yards dark color, 143 (160) yards light color worsted weight yarn for 32 (36)” cowl.
