Strudel is an asymmetrical shaped brioche shawl with a beautiful drape. To be honest, this pattern is a real one row wonder. Repetitive increases and decreases are worked every 4 rows only, giving the shawl its unusual shape. Using the main color an applied I-cord is then worked across for a clean finish. You end up with a very feminine shawl, a perfect pattern to relax and very suitable for brioche beginners and young knitters. Wrap the inner circle around your neck or wear it upside down with the outer circle around your shoulders!
