From Andrea..."Garter and brioche will always be my go-to ingredients for creating my favorite shawls to knit and wear! This shawl works up gorgeously in either Sport or DK weight yarn and using 3 to 4 colors for a deliciously squishy shawl to wrap up in! I always chat with my brioche students about how, as tactile knitters, we love to squish things! Nothing is more plump for squishing and wrapping up in than brioche and garter!"
Andrea has designed the shawl using two different weights of yarn from Hedgehog Fibres and we have kits to make either shawl in the original colours that she has used.

It is incredibly important to do a gauge swatch and then block it for this pattern. We don't carry these yarns in individual skeins and you don't want to run out of yarn!
