Frequency Shawl

Frequency is a deep triangular shawl knit in two-color brioche and garter stitch. The chevron pattern is created by switching between the two textures, combined with switching foreground and background color with the syncopated brioche technique. The main part is knit in two colors, a third color is used for the one-color brioche border and i-cord edges.

The main part of the shawl is available in a charted version as well! The pattern comes in a print/desktop version (includes charts) and a mobile version (for viewing on smartphones and tablets).

The smaller version of Frequency is still plenty large, so you can bundle up and keep comfy on a crisp fall day.

This smaller version of the Frequency Shawl is knit in 3 shades of gray of the fingering weight @gretaandthefibers Raval (400 m / 437 yds per 100g). I used the lightest and the darkest shades for the main part and the medium gray for the border.

This is such a staple shawl that goes with everything and I love that it's bold and subtle at the same time.

The measurements in detail are:
Small Version: 180 cm / 71" length and 86 cm / 34" height
Large Version: 220 cm / 86 1/2" length and 105 cm / 41 1/2" height

The shawl is available on Ravelry and Payhip (or via my website) with a 20% discount until October 30. Happy knitting!

Voilà ce que j'appelle un début prometteur !
C'est ma version du Frequency Shawl de sosuknits (disponible sur Ravelry), tricoté en Monokrom Fingering de urthyarns.
J'adore ses lignes géométriques et son jeu de texture.
Si vous devinez la troisième couleur, vous gagnez un bisou virtuel 😁

When I was younger, my dentist was unimpressed that I used dental floss to cut even layers in cakes.  They would probably be as unimpressed that I now use it to put lifelines in my knitting! #gayswhoknit #frequencyshawl #dentalflossuses #dentalfloss #briocheknitting
Can‘t get enough of this texture! 💕
