Rose Gold is worked in two color brioche from side to side to form what I like to call a peaked asymmetrical crescent! This shawl is one of my favorite shapes because it creates a long wingspan and a fairly shallow depth, so it is very wearable! The reversible brioche begs to hug the curves of your shoulders while the remaining length of the wings dance in a cascading spiral.

I teamed up with Black Trillium Fibres and used two of their gorgeous gradient sets. The effect is a soft melting from light to dark that is mirrored on both sides. I love how bold the final border is with the deepest pigments and brioche lace.*
