I have always been fascinated by the effects of using different yarns together. This shawl combines a fingering and a lace weight.
It is worked top down, starting with a garter tab and increasing in every second row. The more sturdy body of the shawl is knitted in fingering, using a simplified brioche stitch (the one that my mother taught me a long time ago), the airy border is knit-on sideways and done in lace weight. The body does not require any purls, it is almost garter stitch. For the border you will have to work short rows.
Difficulty Level: Intermediate (knit, purl, brioche stitch, short rows, knit-on border)
