I designed this pattern to be a relatively simple brioche pattern that becomes very mindless after a few repeats. Yet, this is not a beginners’ pattern but aimed at knitters who know the basic 2-coloured brioche stitch.
Hence, while this pattern is a relatively easy brioche pattern, it does not go into detail regarding the technique of 2-coloured flat brioche. If this is your very first time knitting this technique, I recommend watching a few YouTube tutorials on 2-colour brioche as well as knitting a swatch to get the general idea. You could use the set-up rows 1-4 for this pattern to knit your swatch. Only once you’re familiar with brk, brp and sl1yo, do I recommend starting to knit the actual pattern which includes increases and decreases.

Yarn: 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn. You could theoretically use any kind of colour, however the pattern will show up most if you use solid or lightly speckled yarn. It will be less visible (but still beautiful) if you use variegated yarn.

Size: the shawl is very customizable. You can knit it as large as you want. I only used ca. 600m (300m of each colour) and still got a wingspan of 170cm (after blocking). If you use two full skeins of fingering weight yarn, it will be significantly bigger.

Gauge: Gauge is not critical for this pattern. Choose yarn and needles that produce a fabric you are happy with.

I have created a thread for this pattern in my Ravelry group: Happy Knitting Podcast Group. Feel free to show your WIPs and discuss your shawl etc. in this group (but please don’t share details of the pattern, of course).

Have fun knitting! ♥
