This crescent shawl is briochealicious! A great beginner project for brioche newbies! Two color brioche stripes are separated by squishy, relaxing garter stitch! The shawls generous length is perfect for a multitude of styling options.

New to the fabulous Brioche Stitch?? This fun (and addicting) stitch will open up a whole new world to your knitting life! Feeling a little intimidated?? Don’t worry - there is a wealth of resources out there! Especially the brioche queen herself - Nancy Marchant! I took her Craftsy class on Brioche and I cannot recommend it enough! Her website is also a great resource to get you started!!

Briochealicious is available in both English & French! A huge thanks to Marie-Line André (MrsPurPle1) from for translating!
