Couldn’t resist the urge to start something new, and I’ve been eyeing Purl Soho’s Classic Cowl pattern for some time now. There were already 4 skeins of the required yarn in my stash (Purl Soho Worsted Twist in Otter Brown), so I got started on Monday.
I don’t know much about brioche knitting but the texture of this “fluffy brioche stitch” is awesome; I think it will be super warm and cushy! The yarn is really soft, too, and enjoyable to use. Here’s a closeup of the stitches (although it’s still hard to really see the texture as clearly as you can in real life):
For some reason my ribbing is slightly slanted, but that should be fixed with a light blocking. I might not use all 4 balls of yarn, though — it would be cool to save some for another project and I think even just 2 balls would make a very adequate cowl.
Well, that’s all for today, thanks for stopping by!
