Matilda has created “Stay warm” a beautiful wraparound shawl with a simple and satisfying construction, perfect to warm up this not so fun November :). After starting with an ingenious small section of garter stitch, you slowly form a large half-moon by alternating relaxing sections in garter stitch and sections of increasing sizes in stitch two-tone brioche that requires a little more attention, to finish with a pretty picot border.
This is a medium difficulty project that is well suited for learning about brioche stitch or for meditative knitting and will make a very nice Christmas present 🙂
Yarn : Ulysse (185 m/ 50g, woolen spun French mérinos d’Arles and Portugese merino)
For the two-color version, you will need 4 balls of the main color and 2 balls of the contrasting color ;
for the three-color version, you will need 4 balls of the main color, 1 ball of CC1 and 2 balls of CC2
