Budding Brioche is a wonderful top down triangular shaped shawl with lots of squishy garter interspersed with strips of one colour brioche panels and ending with a flowery budding brioche scalloped edge with bobbles to boot!
This pattern makes a great beginners brioche project. There are lots of brioche video tutorials included with this pattern, so you have no excuse not to try the wonderful stitch.
