Champagne Brunch Shawl : an asymmetrical triangle shawl knit on the bias using two-color brioche, with an allover pattern meant to mimic champagne bubbles and shells found on the beach.

This shawl pattern was created for Madelinetosh and their Hello, Weekend Collection! Be sure to check out all the fabulous patterns available through this collection, all using Tosh Wool + Cotton.

Skill Level
Intermediate. I highly recommend previous brioche experience before knitting this shawl.

Techniques Used
Twisted German Cast On, knit, purl, brioche knit (brk), brioche purl (brp), brioche increases and decreases, Elastic Bind Off, bias asymmetrical triangle shawl shaping

Construction Notes:
This asymmetrical triangle shawl is knit on the bias, which creates a lovely boomerang shape. You will begin by casting on very few stitches, then increasing more stitches at the right edge, while decreasing fewer stitches at the left edge. The two-color brioche stitch pattern will begin to emerge almost immediately, growing as the shawl grows. The stitch pattern is meant to mimic shells found on the beach, the perfect weekend activity.

This shawl shape is so easy to wear, and using the lightweight yarn makes it a year-round staple for your wardrobe!

This pattern is both written and charted for your convenience!
