Buinne means rapid current in Scottish Gaelic – the perfect name for this watery cowl. With two alternating rushing streams, Buinne is a surprisingly simple knit and a great introduction to brioche knitting. Knit in two colour brioche the cowl is fully reversible and comes in two sizes. Knit it in a neutral and a vibrant colour and change it up to match your mood, or pick colours to match your favourite winter coat, the possibilities are endless!
The pattern includes both charts and written instructions and has been tech edited and test knitted. Never done Brioche knitting before? The pattern comes with a full photo tutorial for every stitch used, the cast on and the bind off and you can also check them out on my tutorials page! With one increase and two decreases, this is a great introduction to Brioche knitting!
