Budding Brioche Blooms
by Jennifer Shiels Toland
Fancy a super light-weight, elegant shawl for those cool Spring nights ahead? Dress up or down with the Budding Brioche Blooms shawl. It is the sister to Budding Brioche, its one colour brioche shawl relative!
This fun top-down triangular shaped shawl introduces a pop of contrast colour. The squishy garter is interspersed with strips of two colour brioche panels and ends with a deep flowering brioche scalloped edge. Budding Brioche Blooms is the perfect stepping-stone in increasing your brioche skills. And there’s lots of brioche video tutorials to guide you through.
This shawl is knit using the stunningly light and silky Meadow, from The Fibre Co. The result is a light, airy and elegant shawl, perfect for those spring and summer evenings.
