Larix Shawl by September Knits | Larix Shawl is an experiment on traditional triangle shawl shaping. I aimed to create an almost diamond shape shawl such that the top point (cast-on) can be worn folded over the body of the shawl, and both sides of the shawl can be seen when worn. Two-color Brioche creates such a beautiful reversible stitch pattern that I wanted to highlight. Combined with the wide wing-span, it wraps easily around the neck, with the body of the shawl draping the chest and shoulders. I love combining two-color garter and brioche stitch knitting techniques. These stitch patterns combine to create a piece that appears to be woven, not knitted. I find that the straightforward hand knits are my most worn garments. The hand knits that I find pleasant, easy, and comfortable to make I also find pleasant, easy, and comfortable to wear. This shawl design is just that. Visually, it is highlighted by brioche columns to appear as rays coming from the spine. Since this shawl is smaller in size, it can be tied in the back or front using the wing tips of the shawl or held on with a shawl clip.
