Satellite by Andrea Mowryis knit in garter and brioche, a winning combination of stitches for shawls! This shawl takes it to the next level with gorgeous texture from fluffy Suri alpaca yarn for the contrasting colours, stripes, short rows and of course that squishy brioche.
The sample was originally knit in La Bien Aimee Helix and La Bein Aimee Kumo, both are lace weight yarns. Alternatively, you could knit in two different 4ply / fingering weight yarns. Play around have fun!
