Ghost is a modern graphic triangular shawl. The use of garter stitch and a simple 2 color brioche as well as the asymmetrical shape creates a fully reversible easy to wear accessory. This pattern was designed for a set of fingering weight gradients or a set of mini skeins. Create your own gradients or just choose a fabulous color palette with your leftover yarn. Have fun with your color choice and watch the colors blend into a full saturation. It can be your first 2-color brioche project!
