iThis shawl was born under der arcades of the Heilandskirche (church of the Redeemer) in Sacrow on one of the most beautiful autumn days I’ve ever seen.
Brioche stitch mixed with the stockinette and reverse stockinette dividing rows are such a beautiful match. The dividers create those nice predetermined fold lines, that make the shawl kink in places and practically make it drape itself. Perfect every time.
