Torness is worked flat and then seamed at right angles to create a wide warm cowl. It is the perfect pattern to make the most of one or two skeins of luxury lace weight yarn.

The crossed brioche stitch pattern worked in lace weight yarn creates a lofty supple fabric for warmth and drape. The stitch pattern creates a reversible fabric and will work with both solid and variegated yarns.

The sample is made using:

Posh Yarn Sophia 2ply (100% Cashmere) 50g = 366m / 400yds. 2 skeins.

Or substitute 732m / 800yds of lace weight yarn. I recommend a yarn which has plenty of loft, or a heavier laceweight.
