Meaning ryegrass in Scottish Gaelic, Roille uses brioche stitches for a stunning brioche cowlette. Knit from the top down like a traditional triangular shawl, Roille is joined in the round just before the lace starts, turning it from shawl to cowlette. Somewhere between a small shawl and a cowl, this is a fun knit and makes a fantastic, easy to wear accessory!

The pattern is fully written and charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
