This is definitely one of my favorite FO’s. Completely unexpected because in true Iz fashion, I hated it at the beginning. The main color was working up so much darker than the cone! Betrayal!

I had such a “meh” feeling as I cast off. I even said out loud, “now what?” as I pulled the yarn through the last stitch.

It wasn’t until I draped it over my shoulders that my heart exploded. I love it, I love it, I love it.

I swore I wasn’t a shawl person. The word alone made me cringe. But hot damn I’ll wear the crap out of this.


The only thing I would change if I were to do it again (and I probably will) is work one more row of garter before the border. I favor the side where the knits are my contrast colors and would have rather the MC purl bumps show on the opposite side.



So so pleased. Happy Monday everyone!

    This is truly lovely! I’m a huge fan of brioche stitch and don’t use it enough. I should make a brioche stitch something or other soon. Thanks for the inspiration! 🙂

    I love shawls and often pick lace patterns, but there’s something to be said for draping squishy garter/ribs/brioche and simple stockinette on a crisp day.

    This is gorgeous! I think I’m going to have move a brioche pattern up my queue. What is the name of this pattern and where did you get it?

    I always think of lace whenever I think of shawls. I never seem to remember that there are some gorgeous solid stitched shawls and brioche stitch always looks so complicated. That looks so cozy and I’m glad you love it.

    Honestly, I just don’t understand shawls, but this is so badass that you’ve got me itching to make one myself!

    Oooh, I love. I’m not sure if its the contrasting colors and textures, or the picture with your tats….either way it’s a fashion accessory you rock so well!

    Came across this post recently looking for brioche stitch patterns. I really love the colours on this shawl! Would you remember by any chance the brand and colours you used to knit it?
