Happy Friday!!  I am so pleased to announce the release of my newest brioche pattern, Whisp :: an asymmetrical cowl with wind and cloud lace, knit using the two-color brioche stitch.  You can find this pattern on Ravelry, here!

This design is an exciting collaboration with Feel Good Yarn Co, and Backyard Fiberworks, and was created to feature at Indie Untangled in Rhinebeck, today only!  You can find this pattern as a part of kits at their trunk show, so if you’re heading there, be sure to check out their booth for three beautiful color way combinations!

I had a lot of fun coming up with this design.  The whole idea behind it was inspired by the SilverSpun® yarn itself, which is quite remarkable.  The combination of cotton, silver, and nylon make this yarn some of the softest I have ever worked with.  And yes, I did say silver!!  So the idea was to create a “silver linings” piece, and two-color brioche was the perfect stitch pattern!  Warm wooly outside, soft squishy inside.  I totally ran with this for my design, using wind and cloud-like shaping within the brioche.  This cowl is worked flat, starting at the widest end and then decreasing slowly at one edge until binding off. The cowl is then seamed together, with the angled side creating a folded fabric to show off the Contrast Side, keeping the soft SilverSpun® cotton on your skin at all times.
