Meet Dimensions, a squishy, cosy brioche scawl! It‘s a hybrid between a scarf and a shawl, combining the best of both worlds. Shaped with decreases at the right edge and increases at the left edge, Dimensions is worked on the bias, meaning you knit diagonally, making it extra drapey and stretchy.

The pattern comes with a little introduction to brioche, instructions for one- colour-brioche and two-colour-brioche and a lot of information on how to customise the measurements. You can easily knit the scawl with almost any weight of yarn, gauge and needle size. Simply grab your favourite yarn and needles – we hope you‘ll enjoy making your own version of it!

This pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
