Riihi is a crescent shaped shawl with garter stitch and two-color brioche. This shawl uses a special technique to work two-color brioche with short row shaping. This technique isn’t difficult but requires two circular needles. The shawl is finished off with a contrast color zig zag edge and an i-cord bind off. The best thing about the shawl is that it’s fully reversible – you can use it with either side on top.

One size, medium.
