Choose two colors of yarn for this top-down brioche shawl. Massive increases shape the semi-circular fabric as they suddenly explode and create a big hole from a single stitch. Increases and decreases form the final wavy border.
Use two fingering weight yarns or try Qing Fibre’s Baby Suri Apaca yarn as the contrast color for a Suriously Holey project.
78” / 198cm wingspan,
26” / 66cm from CO to BO edge measured along the center. Measurements taken after blocking.
Qing Fibre Melted Baby Suri is technically sport weight, but it works really well with the fingering weight main color. The fluffy suri alpaca yields a super soft background layer like the merino stitches are resting on alpaca clouds.
