This is a crescent shaped shawl made with 3 colours. The body of the shawl is mostly twisted rib stitches with a combination of little stitch patterns to create the textures. The border is worked with two-colour brioche and uses basic brioche increase and decrease sts.
Yarn: Light fingering weight yarn in three colors: C1: 330yds (300m) (pink in sample) C2: 300yds (275m) (yellow) *(dominant colour in border brioche section)*C3: 530yds (485m) (variegated)
Sample uses Bear in Sheep’s Clothing Luxury (50% Wool, 50% Silk, 495m, 100g) C1: Smoke, C2: Protista, C3: Millpond.
*(Circular needles will be required for the brioche section.)*I’m a tight knitter and used the same size needles for both twisted rib and brioche, if you are a loose knitter you may want to go down a needle size for brioche.
Gauge: 28 sts and 40 rows = 4” (10cm) in 1x2 twisted rib (k1tbl, p2) after blocking.
