Learning to brioche knit can be intimidating, it took me a long time to psych myself up for it. But once I took the plunge I was amazed by how simple it was and I couldn't believe that I had waited so long.
The main reason I wanted to learn to brioche was because I wanted to dye yarns that would actually create a color change spiralling up my knitted projects. Thats how this kit came to be!
This is two patterns in one, you can use the yarn in your kit to either make a short wide cowl or a long scarf. The pattern is the same but the number of stitches cast on is different. You can choose either pattern and the color on your yarn will automatically pool and wander its way up.
