Sometimes a crochet stitch pattern like this one is just so perfect, and a cowl is the perfect way to show it off.
Cami has a blog called Art, Like Bread. I love this from her blog:
It features a reversible crochet "brioche stitch" pattern that is one is one of my personal favorites. Not only is it fast and easy, it's super fun to see what happens when you change colors!
I agree with Tracy, it has the charm of knit brioche with all the added benefits of being crocheted.
I've met new crochetin' friends in Twitter, and Cami (aka Caissa McClinton) is one of them. Check out her completed Radicowl:
"The world is beautiful and art, like bread is for everyone."
