Gina’s Brioche Cowl in Cashmere!
We love Gina’s original Brioche Cowl in merino and suri but had a hankering to try this gorgeous knit in something even more spectacular. Enter Jade Sapphire‘s unparalleled 100% Mongolian Cashmere. Hand dyed in a beautiful rainbow of colors, from cool Silver Pearl to this shocking Pink Panther, Jade Sapphire’s cashmere is as soft as a nebulous cloud and as cozy as a hug. This version of the Brioche Cowl packs a hot pink punch and will take you through the brisk evenings of spring in toasty comfort and beautiful style!
New to Brioche? Check out our tutorial! It is a magical stitch, lofty as can be, with all the fun color-play of Fair Isle or Intarsia, but with much less fuss!
