This shawl was born under der arcades of the Heilandskirche (church of Redeemer) in Sacrow on one of the most beautiful autumn days I’ve ever seen.

Brioche stitch and Brooklyn tweed loft are such a beautiful match. And the dividing rows create those nice predetermined breaking points, that the shawl drapes itself perfectly.
