Shop sample: Mauvelous

Shop sample: Mauvelous

Mauvelous by Lesley Anne Robinson is a large, symmetrical triangle shawl with stripes of color and geometric patterns, knit using a combination of garter stitch medallions and two-color brioche zig zags. Suitable for an adventurous beginner-intermediate brioche knitter, the pattern was written to be approachable for knitters who want to dive deeper into brioche lace. The sample was knit by Sarah using 3 colors of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light, a luxurious hand-dyed 100% superwash merino available in a wide and rich color palette. The finished shawl is drapey, soft, and brioche-squishy. What colors will you put together?
