Bold linear texture of double brioche is enhanced in this shawl with the use of 2 contrasting colors, where each of them is dominating on each side. Simplified and more straightforward technique has been developed to create this pleasing knit. You will learn how to use it along with an unusual increasing method while keeping the patterning intact, which is the core look of this accessory. And all while maintaining perfect border edges and minimal finishing.
