Brioche and Garter are a match made in heaven – and the combination offers endless possibilities. This first pattern of the Brioche Trilogy is a simple yet stunning unisex shawl that combines triangles of Brioche with garter stitch and features i-cord edges.
This is a great pattern for speckled yarn (as Color A and/or C), combined with a neutral (Color B) and a bright pop of color (Color D).
