This graphic asymmetrical shawl combines a triangle of brioche and garter strips with a short-row border and features a whimsical picot edge.
This is a great pattern for speckled yarn (Color A). Use colors A & B with lots of contrast for a graphic result, with the lighter color as A – combined with a bright pop of color (C).
