Briony by Jenna Murphy is a wonderful topper to just about anything you might wear on a chilly day, whether it be casual or a bit more dressy. The finished product is soft and lofty, and it has a voluminous, cozy feel. I absolutely love all the textures in this project including the choice of yarn. Jenna used 2 skeins of Plymouth Yarn Homestead Tweed in the color Thistle, a 90% wool and 10% donegal blend. The stitch combinations including seed stitch, reverse stockinette, rib, and cables keeps the knitter interested throughout the entire project. This cowl is knit in the round from bottom to top.


The cable repeats are more simple than the finished product suggests. If you haven’t tried cables but want to learn we are offering a class to learn how to knit the Briony this month. The two part class will be held Saturday, October 8th from 2:00pm-3:00pm and Saturday, October 15th from 2:00pm-4:00pm. The class is $30 and will include Jenna’s pattern.
