One for sorrow,
Two for joy,
Three for a girl,
Four for a boy,
Five for silver,
Six for gold,
Seven for a secret,
Never to be told.
Eight for a wish,
Nine for a kiss,
Ten for a bird,
You must not miss.

Inspired by the graphic lines and swoops of a magpie wing, this shawl highlights the complexities of a tonal gradient to create unexpected curves and angles in two-color brioche.
