Lyta is a wide shallow shawlette, that combines simple garter stripes and eyelets with some fun brioche stitches!

Worked top down using sport weight yarn, Lyta works up swiftly and is started without a garter tab, for a quick and satifying knit.

The brioche sections are both written as well as charted and all the brioche stitches have video tutorials, in case you’d like a visual or need a refresher!

Use #LytaShawl when sharing your progress on Ravelry and online, I love to see what everyone is making!

( You might be able to get away with just one skein each as I did for my sample, but some of my test knitters needed more, so to be safe, figure on above amounts!)
