Sweater Shawl

I thought that was an interesting name for a garment.  Nancy S. sent me the link to this pattern, and once I saw it, I couldn't resist.  I looked through my stash...certainly I had something that would be the ticket.  I found one skein that had been waiting for about 3 years to be picked for a project. I thought it would be perfect!  However, I needed another skein to have enough yardage.  Hmmm.

I got on-line and I was fortunate enough to find another skein of the same color.  I took a chance, ordered it, received it, and it's going to work just fine!!  So the project is on the needles! 

The "body" starts out with 2 1/2 inches of ribbing and then begins the Lofty Brioche Stitch.  I have never seen or tried this stitch before, but I think it's fantastic.  More on what this garment is going to look like later...


  1. Glad that you liked the pattern.

    The yarn is perfect for this project. Do you mind sharing the yarn details?

    1. Plymouth Yarn, called Mushishi (95% Wool, 5% Silk)in Creams.

  2. That is gorgeous! I love the soft colors.

  3. Beautiful. I love the yarn and like you, have always wanted to try the Brioche stitch. Is it difficult?
