This beautiful brioche shawl begins at the corner and increases to form the triangular shape. Increases and decreases create a large wave motif along one edge of the shawl. Choose two colors of fingering weight yarn to knit this design like Qing Fibre’s Yak Singles, a blend of merino, yak, and silk, paired with Melted Baby Suri alpaca. You can easily customize the size of this shawl by binding off early for a smaller size or knitting more pattern repeats for a large shlanket.
Finished Measurements 72″ / 183cm wingspan, 58″ / 147cm along center triangle point. Measurements taken after blocking.
The finished size of the shawl is customizable.

Qing Fibre Yak Single (65% Merino Wool, 20% Silk, 15% Yak; 437yds / 400m per 100g skein) MC - Antique Rose
Qing Fibre Melted Baby Suri (65% Suri Alpaca, 20% Wool, 15% Silk; 191yds / 175m per 50g skein) CC - Peachy
If you are using a fluffy alpaca or mohair yarn, I recommend using it as the CC for a fluffy background.
You can knit this pattern with any fingering weight yarn! You don’t need to have a fluffy yarn for the CC if you want a smoother non-fluffy shawl fabric. Using two colors of fingering weight wool will also make a beautiful graphic Brioshoreline Shawl.
