Squish Factor is a triangular shaped shawl worked from the top down. Garter stitch flows into brioche and slipped stitches create an interesting center section. All of these design elements combined produce a soft and squishy fabric, that grows beautifully while blocking.

The pattern includes written instructions for both regular and brioche abbreviations, tips on how to work a garter tab more easily and directions for the cable cast on that is used for the i-cord edge.
