Delphia Cowl: A New Brownie Knits Design

This is my favorite Brownie Knits design yet and I am incredibly excited to finally share it with all of you! Please meet Delphia!!! This a stranded colorwork cowl that was inspired by last year's cold winter. I hope you like the pattern and enjoy knitting it. You can purchase the pattern for $4.99 via Ravelry.com, Craftsy.com, or the Brownie Knits Etsy store.


Delphia is a plaid cowl knit in a tube to provide a fully finished look to both sides of the garment. The stranding work is knitted in the round and charted instructions are provided in the pattern. Because of the construction of Delphia, it is effectively 4 layers thick to provide extra warmth during those cold months of winter, but it still remains soft and comfortable. The stylish plaid cowl is the perfect accessory to keep you warm, cozy, and looking classy!


(The pattern uses a provisional crochet cast on method, but could be replaced with a normal cast on and bind off and then a normal to attach the beginning and end.)
