This shawl is an ode to cold, calm, and white snowy days that winter gracefully give us sometimes. The shawl starts at the centre edge and is worked as a half-pi shaped shawl. Its double yarn over stitch pattern progress throughout the body of the shawl getting more scattered as you progress. The stripy lace border is then worked in German Short Rows. Short rows are really simple to work and they are almost invisible on stocking stitch. This way the border almost blends in the shawl body.
Oh man, I love to block my knits. Maybe even a little too much.
Brioche knitting allow us to add some vertical stripes in our knits, something which is not so easy to implement otherwise. Near the end of this shawl I felt the need to balance all this vertically with horizontal stripes. Because what’s better than stripes ? More stripes!
