Brioche Set-Up

Please find a post in the Comments section.

Meet Kimberley – a shawl so light yet cosy and warm, the perfect shape to keep you snug on cold winter mornings or cool summer nights. Using Nurturing Fibres super soft and extremely drapey Super Twist Sock Yarn from South Africa; this three-colour shawl is worked in garter colour blocks and basic brioche stitch bands. The pattern is easily adjustable to suit your individual preference and style.
The beginning and end of each row contain increases and decreases, which create the shape of the shawl – a triangular, sideways and bias knit shawl with a curved top edge which fits nicely around the neckline.
The basic brioche stitch bands are easy to achieve, even for someone new to this technique, and there are plenty of video tutorials on YouTube if you are at all unsure.
