Stellaire is a super easy-to-wear asymmetrical triangle shawl with two fading actions: from light to dark and from two-color garter stitch to two-color brioche lace. This is the perfect pattern for anyone wanting to dip their toes into brioche lace knitting!
Skill level: Beginner Brioche friendly! Basic brioche skills are not required. Techniques used: knit, purl, brioche knit (brk), brioche purl (brp), simple brioche increases and decreases. I wrote this pattern to be very approachable to brioche beginners!!
Construction Notes: This asymmetrical triangle shawl is knit from cast on tip to bind off edge, with increases along the right edge. The shawl begins with relaxing two-color garter stitch, while engaging two-color brioche lace stripes are added in gradually as the shawl grows, creating a pattern fade in the overall shawl design. As the two-color garter stitch sections get smaller, the two-color brioche sections grow larger, until they are equal in width. This is the point where the super fun color blending comes in! This pattern has been written specifically for the color blending method that I used in the shawl, but feel free to not blend your colors, or use the same method to blend in even more combinations than I used!
This pattern is both written and charted for your convenience!
