TriX is a large, reversible, extra soft and squishy shawl with a generous size and ‘syncopated’ brioche stitch patterns in triangular shapes and two colors. It is worked sideways and it has a large V- or boomerang shape. The sample is knit with a DK weight but it can easily be knit in a lighter yarn weight with the same needle size or a smaller size. It will give a lightweight, summery and airy shawl.
The brioche stitch patterns are written out (no charts).
