Brioche knitting is a simple multicolor technique where you can mix your favourite colors and yarns to be unique and playful! Two-color brioche is unique and results like two different shawl - You can wear both sides. Each counted row is worked twice, the first or the main color is worked (I used olive green) and then remember that do not turn, just slide the stitches and doing the same row is worked again using the contrast color (I used dark grey) in other word - the second color.

Errata: There seems to be an error in Row 7, MC, of the edging chart. There are 5 brk stitches charted before the br4stinc, but as set up there should only be 4. The writtien instructions also has 4 brk before the br4stinc.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 58” (150cm) wide x 21” (52cm) long, after blocking.

YARN: One shawl: Drops Alpaca yarn, 100% alpaca, or ohter the same gauge yarn. I used olive and dark grey.
Now I knitted with 500gr/200m (Baby alpaca Mix by BBB).
Second shawl: Araucania Botany Lace, 7.5 sts = 1 inch, 450 yards (411 meters) = 100gr

GAUGE: 10 x 10 cm (4“) = 23 sts x 30 rows
Weight / yardage: 1.8 oz (50 g) = approx 183 yds (167 m).

YARN CONSUMPTION – a little be more than 100g one and 100g another color. My shawl weights about 225g.
