Ginny Cowl & Scarf

Four colors, combined in Brioche and Garter stitch, form a Gingham or Buffalo plaid pattern.
Ginny can be knit as a large cowl that loops around the neck twice or as a classic scarf.

The cowl and scarf have the same construction: both are knit flat in two-color Brioche and Garter stitch. The cowl is created by seaming the short sides of the scarf (cast-on and bind-off edges) together after blocking.
A textural checkboard pattern is created by switching between Brioche and Garter stitch. Then, using colors, the checkerboard turns into a buffalo plaid/gingham pattern.

You can make a more traditional two-color Gingham version by using the same color for MC2, CC1, and CC2.

#GinnyCowl

GINNY is long enough for a double wrap - which means double the warmth to ward off the winter chill! 🥰

🏁 The name Ginny is a play on the Gingham pattern that inspired the design. I wanted to create more of a plaid than a checkerboard effect by adding two contrasting colors. But if you prefer a more traditional Gingham check, you can knit Ginny in two colors only. 

The cowl is knit flat and seamed for the cowl version, or leave it flat for a traditional scarf.🧣 

The pattern is super straightforward and you can easily adapt it by adding stitch and/or pattern repeats. 

Are you a more visual knitter? Ginny comes both as a written and a charted pattern!

The pattern is available on Ravelry & Payhip.

Here’s a close-up of fully reversible fabric and a minimal slipped-stitch edge of the Ginny cowl. 

I‘m so smitten with this four-color Brioche & Garter stitch Gingham plaid, I’ve been sketching a Cardigan design with it. Can’t wait to start swatching! 😊

And in the meantime, I get to bundle up in the Ginny cowl! 😊
