RAINBRIOCHE is a large crescent shaped shawl that can be wrapped around the neck several times. The pattern combines ribbed stripes with brioche knitting. The right side features small colorful stripes and a straight brioche pattern. The edge pattern gives the shawl its feminine design.

What is the idea about this shawl? It´s all about colors - I started with a skein of speckled yarn which combined many different colors - then I was looking for matching colors in my stash and arranged them as a rainbow.

The shawl is made of two skeins of fingering weight yarn by Madelinetosh: a light speckled color, a bright red color for the edge section and colorful leftovers.
Due to its symmetrical shape, you don´t have to count too much and above all the pattern allows some mindless knitting to travel with … and I love to wear it!

Repetitive increases are giving the shawl its crescent shape. Using the bright red color, the applied I-cord is then worked across for a clean finish! You end up with a large, gentle curved feminine shawl. I am sure, you will love it!
