Choose two colors of yarn for this top-down brioche shawl. Massive increases shape the semi-circular fabric as they suddenly explode and create a big hole from a single stitch. Increases and decreases form the final wavy border. Use two fingering weight yarns or try Qing Fibre’s Baby Suri Apaca yarn as the contrast color for a Suriously Holey project.

Yarn: Fingering weight
Qing Fibre Melted Baby Suri is technically sport weight, but it works really well with the fingering weight main color. The fluffy suri alpaca yields a super soft background layer like the merino stitches are resting on alpaca clouds.
