Brioche and Garter are a match made in heaven – and the combination offers endless possibilities.

This deep triangular shawl features a bolt of garter lightning zig-zagging through the brioche fabric.

The background color of the brioche is mohair yarn, making this an airy and lightweight yet fuzzy soft shawl, surrounded by a garter short-row border with brioche corners and an i-cord bind off.

This pattern combines fingering weight merino (Colors A & C) with lace-weight mohair (Color B). For an extra color pop, you can work the i-cord BO in a fourth Color or with Color A (as pictured).
