I love brioche knitting because it creates a wonderfully fluffy fabric. In two colors it can also get gorgeous geometric patterns. I especially love the stitch used here because it creates a gorgeous lattice or fence effect. And that effect is where the name comes from – Zaunkönig (the German name of the eurasian wren) literally means king of the fence. Here, it has been used to create a mixture of a cowl and a poncho.

The pattern PDF is 8 pages long and contains
  • row-by-row pattern instructions - in one size only (you can change the circumference by chanigng the number of stitches to cast on, but if you follow the pattern the piece will we twice as wide at the bottom than at the top)
  • charts of the pattern repeat(s)
  • photo tutorials for the brioche increases and decreases you need for this cowl: brk2inc (knit, yarn over, knit into one stitch), brp2inc (purl, yarn over, purl into one stitch), brkX (brioche stitch that creates the lattice effect)
The first and third picture show the light side of this piece - the second and forth the dark side.
