For the longest time I wanted to create a Brioche Stitch project. I though about a simple cowl, but we have plenty of those, and I might still make my own version of a brioche cowl, but a shawl seemed a better choice.
I love knitting and designing shawls, as much as I love wearing them. When properly styled and if made with nice colors, they can be so stylish and I feel really good when I wear something pretty and that I made myself.
Fallen Leaves Shawl
The lines of brioche and garter stitch come together in a triangular shawl inspired by fallen leaves and the colors of autumn.
This cozy shawl will wrap you in the beauty of fallen leaves as the fall air turns crisp. Staying warm and stylish couldn’t be easier.
