A Few Different Angles
Due to the play of brioche and garter stitch, the textured stripes look like mitered squares on the DS and like brioche triangles on the LS.
But, as everything worked in brioche, the shawl is beautiful on both sides!
The shawl is started with an i-cord garter tab, then continued as a normal triangular shawl, with i-cords on the sides that give a finished look with no effort (and allowing to hide the LC when the yarn is not used).
Finished size: Wingspan 170 cm (69”); depth 75 cm (29.5”).
