This shawl has a funny story. When I planned to self-publish the Tourlaville shawl, I decided to make a video tutorial for it. Before the brioche part I also showed how to knit the same row twice - so in the swatch I got a striped part and a two-color brioche part above each other. This looked so inspiring that I wanted to make a shawl with this pattern for sure. My choice was some Wollmeise left overs - I hoarded a lot of this yarn because I love its bright colors! - I had 3 balls of gelb-orange colorway. The amount of the colors I had varied a great deal, that’s why I chose the asymmetrical shawl shape. With this shape even a small amount color is enough for a stripe if you use it at the beginning.

This pattern is now in testing phase. The pattern is easily adjustable. The sample is made with one main color plus 3 contrast colors, but it can knitted with more contrast colors, or without main color, simple more colors too. The width of the different sections is also adjustable according to the yarn amount available. This makes this shawl a perfect stash busting project. The applicants for the test were very creative with the yarn choice - I couldn’t resist to include them all - I’m so excited to see all those variations!
