Peacock's Pride Shawl
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.
