Metallic and Reflective :: Aureate is an asymmetrical triangle shawl, knit flat from tip to edge using garter stitch, two-colour brioche stitch, and a garter mesh lace stitch. The short row arrow-shaped wedges help to create the distinct shape - as the shawl grows, the Brioche sections get smaller and the accent wedges become larger until casting off.

Printed copies can be purchased directly from Loop, follow this link to their website!
