ABOUT THIS PATTERN
This pattern uses double tuck stitches, a variant of brioche stitches. It will be enjoyed most by a knitter experienced in brioche knitting who is interested in working on a project that employs similar techniques, but isn't mentally taxing. Per the instructions in the pattern, the bind off in the pattern may be swapped out for an easier stretchy bind off of your choice. The key is that in order to block the shawl to shape, the bind off MUST be stretchy! ENJOY!
