Syncopation is a syncopated brioche asymmetric triangle shawl or scarf, knit from narrow end to wide end. The interplay between the dark rib and light edging is enhanced by the playful dance of the leafy border. Pattern requires 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn in coordinating colors, one skein of each.

Choose between a deep shawl and a longer, shallower scarf that can wrap twice around your neck. Size is easily adjustable by using more or less yardage.

Shawl shown in blue/gold, and scarf shown in purple.

You’ll need a 24” circular needle for working 2-color brioche flat.

Options are given for plain or fancy endings. Knitter’s choice!
