Beautiful 2 coloured lacy triangular shawl knitted in Brioche stitch in a 16 stitch repeated pattern that gives a beautiful floral array. The knit assumes knowledge of the Brioche knitting and the abbreviations used. I have included some basic information in the pattern and a photo explanation of the more complicated 4 stitch decrease. More information can be found on-line in various youtube videos which you can find here http://www.thefemininetouchdesigns.co.uk/learn-brioche.html

The pattern now includes instructions to make the shawl much bigger (as in the purple shawl photo). Length 70” / Sides 50”.

Trollius are herbaceous perennials which form a clump of palmately lobed leaves, with erect stems bearing solitary, yellow, globose or bowl-shaped flowers composed of several petal-like sepals surrounding much-reduced nectar-bearing petals
