The Leafy Origami Loop Cowl is a 2-color brioche cowl, knit in the round from the bottom up. Like my original Leafy Origami, it features a stitch pattern that falls into mountain and valley folds. This loop version uses smaller leaves, so you can have more of them on your cowl. Both the larger leafed original cowl and this longer loop cowl can be knit to the circumference you prefer, 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.
Cowl requires 170 (190) yards dark color, 143 (160) yards light color worsted weight yarn for 32 (36)” cowl.
This pattern will be available through Ravelry, link soon.
This pattern will also be available from my Payhip shop.
