Invincible Summer

Laine Magazine, Issue 2

The subtle combination of garter stitch and brioche elements is the perfect playground for La Bien Aimée’s beautiful Speckled Fade colorways. The result of this collaboration is a timeless shawl that transcends trends.

The shawl is knit sideways on the bias in garter stitch with an i-cord selvedge. Triangular brioche elements arise along the centre line on alternating sides. A contrasting brioche border along one side adds a splash of colour.
