Never a dull moment if you’ll knit Si Sjo’s Candyfloss shawl! Like a rollercoaster ride it starts nice & easy with a two coloured brioche section in harmonious shades.
Then it gets in a rush when the speckled yarn comes in alternately purl-and-knit stitches and a small ajour rim. Wilder and wilder it goes when you enter next the brioche section. The last part is  like dancing the Hully Gully on a carnival with most vividly contrasts in the colors. And all over, there is this candyfloss fluffiness, due to the use of the softest kid mohair yarn.
