I’m lucky enough to be on holiday in one of the most beautiful places on earth and because I’m really not a skier, I made sure I brought these beauties along with me!
This is the lovely Scheepjes Vinci, a 60/40% wool/acrylic blend that is just the softest bulky yarn ever. It has the warmth of wool and the softness of acrylic, which I love. Especially as I’m wool-sensitive and a bit of a Merino snob as you know!
The yarn calls for an 8mm hook (or needles), but for this project I’m going up a couple of sizes to a 10mm hook. I’m also using colours 9 and 21 for this project.
So what am I making? Well from the title you already know that it’s crochet brioche, and you know I’m in the Alps and I’ve already made a Brioche Beanie, so because I need to keep warm I’m making a cowl!
It won’t be long and I’ll have more photos of the finished cowl, and not to mention: the tutorial!
