This shawl has been designed for Do Ewe Knit? and Vogue Knitting Live 2020 in New York City.

Brioche Mosaic Arrows adorn this deep triangular shawl that is surrounded by a contrasting border and an i-cord for a finished look. Choose between a striped i-cord in the main colors or add a fourth color for an extra color pop. The shawl is fully reversible (you can see the WS on some of the pictures).

The main part of the shawl is knit bottom-up in two-color brioche and garter stitch. This first section is available as both written and charted instructions (see pages 3, 7, 8 and 10). A contrasting border is added to the two lower sides of the triangle in garter stitch with brioche corners, then a brioche border is attached to the top edge of the shawl in the same contrasting color. Finally, an i-cord edge surrounds the entire shawl, using either the two colors of the main triangle for a striped i-cord or a fourth color for an extra pop.
