This huge shawl plays with fluffy brioche and lace and is super airy. That’s how it got its name. Airi is also a traditional Finnish female name.

This is kind of a traditional shawl too: it has some lace, but with luxurious hand-dyed yarn in modern colors and a statement color stripe combined with an i-cord edge, it looks contemporary.

Also it matches with everything! You can make it fun by using crazy speckled yarns or more sophisticated with simple high quality yarns. Or how would it look with two different blacks? The same pattern gives you many different looks from chic to dramatic.

The best part about Airi is that’s super easy to knit: there’s no purling in fluffy brioche (but it’s just as easy as garter stitch) and only some purl stitches in easy lace. Just watch some Netflix and enjoy knitting!

Size: 250 cm x 70 cm after blocking with sock yarn, 225 cm x 65 cm with single yarn.

This is a perfect size for using 2 skeins and a mini skein of yarn. Expensive yarns are also used as economically as possible.
