This long triangle shawl is knit from one corner to the other using simple brioche increases and decreases. Interest and texture are added to the fabric with two-color garter steps, which are staggered as the shawl takes shape. The accent border is added by picking up stitches along the shawl edge, then finished off with short row shaping and an eyelet bind off.
