Fend Off Freezing Temperatures With Two-Color Brioche Knitting Patterns

There's nothing like hand knit accessories and sweaters to fight off that winter freeze, especially when it's a thick knitted fabric. Need to create an accessory that's thicker than your usual knit? Brioche knitting patterns are perfect for fending off freezing temperatures.

Brioche knitting patterns create a fabric that's doubly thick. It's also reversible — no wrong sides here! — so you can count on brioche knitting patterns to look gorgeous even when the crazy wind is blowing them all around.

Nope, I'm not tricking you. Even though this cowl has multiple colors, it still uses the two-color brioche stitch. You'll never knit with more than two colors at once. If you choose, you could even knit this with just two colors. No matter what you choose, the stitch remains the same.
