Playing with colors can be one of the great joys when it comes to knitting, and sometimes you just have to make more than one project! There are moments filled with debates on how each color should be used and it can be a struggle -- I know it can be for me, especially with brioche. This inner battle and love of the first Swing Shift cowl inspired the newest version, Swing Shift Lite. This fun cowl is an abundance of delicious texture and squishy brioche. Watch the colors play as they shift, highlighting the beauty of each colorway and when they merge together. Whether you go with opposites-attract skeins or a more subtle color shift, this cowl allows for you to dip your toes into the squishtastic world of brioche and playing with color contrasts.
