Basync Brioche - PDF Knitting Pattern


The Story

When the need for simplicity in my life crashed into my love of brioche, this basic, single syncopation brioche cowl was born.


  • Ewe Ewe Yarns Ewe So Sporty (sport weight; 100% superwash merino wool; 145 yds / 50g skein)
    • Modeled Size Small - 1 skein each of:
      • Sky Blue 75 (Color A)
      • Sapphire 78 (Color B)
    • Modeled Size Large - 2 skeins each of
      • Pistachio 50 (Color A)
      • Soft Sage 45 (Color B)
  • US 6 (4mm) 24” (60”) circular needle
  • Stitch Marker


Small (Large): 7.75 (6.5) inches tall x 24.5 (61) inches circumference


19 sts and 26 rows = 4 inches in brioche rib after blocking


  • These cowls are constructed in the round. A basic color swap halfway through the height of the cowl allows for the simple syncopation.
  • This pattern includes instructions for 2 sizes of cowl. Instructions for the smaller size (modeled in blues) is written first with instructions for the larger cowl (modeled in greens) in parenthesis. When only one number is given, it applies to both sizes.
  • Adjust needle size as necessary to match gauge.
  • While these samples were knit on the same size needles throughout, if you know you have a tight cast on or bind off, it is recommended to go up two needle sizes for the cast on and bind off to avoid pulling/puckering.
  • For the edging at either end, carry the colors up inside the project to save in yardage and weaving ends.
  • This project is meant to use the entirety of the skeins provided; while checking gauge is always recommended, the above allowances do not account for a gauge swatch.
  • If you are new to brioche, I have created a collection of How To Brioche videos on YouTube.
