Color brioche knitting looks more challenging than it appears, but don’t let it intimidate or fool you. You’ll be surprised at how easy it actually is and get fantastic results to boot! Friday Harbor is a great introductory project for brioche knitting and is a wonderful addition to your accessories wardrobe, or that of a loved one.
The every size of cowl only uses less than one skein of each color, which makes it ideal for stash-busting. Friday Harbor is worked in the round in a looser gauge using a basic 2-color syncopated brioche knitting technique that’s fairly easy to achieve — really!
