Olde City by Meghan Babin is a plump, warm winter cowl is worked in the round on circular needles with the yarn held double throughout. Fisherman’s Ribbing is the simpler cousin to brioche; we’ve created a no-frills tutorial on how to work the stitch.
To hold the yarn doubled wind center pull balls and draw from the inside and outside.
