Plumpy - Printed Pattern by Drea Renee Knits


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 then brioche and garter!

(Note: I used 10-15% less yardage than what is listed for my samples. We all knit very differently and you may have different results. Color A is the one I have recieved feedback on of possibly running low. If this is a concern for you, I recommend buying an extra skein and checking both your Garter and Brioche gauges after blocking.)
