Brioche Leaves Gradient Shawl

Difficulty level: **** Experienced

Free Shawl Knitting Pattern

The shawl is knitted in a combination of 2-color brioche and 2-color garter stitch. This means that it's fully reversible.

The shawl is a triangle shape and is worked from the pointy end, from the bottom up. Brioche leaves form the border of the shawl. The LC (light color) is white yarn, the DC (dark color) is formed by yarns of 11 colors to create a smooth gradient, representing the changing colors of the leaves: from green to yellow to orange to brown. You can use yarn gradient-colored yarn with long color changes or even solid color yarn.

Skills required:

To knit this shawl, you have to know how to knit 2-color garter stitch, 2-color brioche stitch, and make brioche decreases and increases.

Pattern Notes

Abbreviations

Please note that I use Nancy Marchant terminology for brioche stitch. I highly recommend her books Knitting Brioche: The Essential Guide to the Brioche Stitch and Knitting Fresh Brioche: Creating Two-Color Twists & Turns, as well as her lessons on craftsy.com.
yf - yarn forward: bring the yarn to the front, between the tips of the needles.
yb - yarn back: take the yarn to the back, between the tips of the needles.
sl1yof - slip 1, yarn over, yarn to front: with working yarn in front, slip the next stitch purlwise, then bring the yarn over the needle and the slipped stitch, then bring yarn back around to the front, ready to purl the following stitch.
yfsl1yo - yarn forward, slip 1, yarn over: bring the working yarn between the tips of the needles to front of work, slip the next stitch purlwise, then bring the yarn over the needle and the slipped stitch. Leave yarn in back, ready to knit the next stitch.
brk - brioche knit: knit the stitch together with its accompanying yarnover
brp - brioche purl: purl the stitch together with its accompanying yarnover
brkyobrk – [brk1, yo, brk1] in the same stitch. 2 stitches are increased.
br4st-inc – brk1, yo, brk1, yo, brk1 into the same stitch: 1 stitch increased to five.
brsssk (left slant 2-stitch decrease) –slip the next 2 sts (the marked st with its yarn over and the next single st) knitwise, one at a times, onto the right needle. Brk, then pass the 2 slipped sts over.
brk2tog (right slant 2-stitch decrease) –slip 2 sts knitwise (st with yarn over and single st) and brk them together. Return this st to the left needle and pass the st (with its yarn over) over. Slip this st purlwise to the right needle.
br4st-dec –brioche 4 st decrease (worked over 5 sts, 4 sts dec): slip first brioche st knitwise, slip brp st knitwise, place next brioche st on cable needle or stitch marker and hold in front of work, knit next st on LH needle, pass slipped brp st on RH needle over (1 st dec), move st to LH needle, pass next brioche st over (1 st dec), move st to RH needle, pass first slipped brioche st over (1 st dec), move st from marker to LH needle, move st on RH needle to LH needle and pass held brioche sts over (1 st dec), move st back to RH needle.
LS – light side
DS – dark side
LC – light color
DC- dark color
pm – place marker
sm – slip marker
rm – remove marker
k – knit
p – purl
sl1 – slip 1 (knitwise for the 1st stitch in a row).
k2tog – knit 2 together, 1 stitch decreased.
m 1 (Make 1 increase) - I used the increase described by Elizabeth Zimmerman: Make a backward loop over the right-hand needle.



Two-Color Brioche Stitch – Basic Instructions

These instructions are included as a guide to the technique, and as instructions for swatching.

A single brioche row is worked in two passes, one in light color (LC) and the other in dark color (DC). Both colors are worked in one direction, then the work is turned and both colors are worked in the other direction. The light side (LS) of the project is first worked in light color (LC) yarn, then in dark color (DC) yarn. The LS of the work is where brk stitches are worked in light color (LC) yarn.

Odd number of stitches
Set-up row (LC): k1, *sl1yof, p1, rep from *, to last 2 sts, sl1yof, p1. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.
Set-up row (DC): sl1, yb, *brk1, yfsl1yo, repeat from * to last 2 sts, brk1, yb, sl last st. Turn.
Row 1 (LS, LC): k1, *yfsl1yo, brk1, repeat from * to last 2 sts, yfsl1yo, k1. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.
Row 1 (LS, DC): sl1, yf, *brp1, sl1yof, repeat from * to last 2 sts, brp1, yb, slip last st. Turn.
Row 2 (DS, LC): p1, *sl1yof, brp1, repeat from * to last 2 sts, sl1yof, p1. DO not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.
Row 2 (DS, DC): sl1, yb, *brk1, yfsl1yo, repeat from * to last 2 sts, brk1, yf, sl last st. Turn.


Two-Color Garter Stitch

These are included as a guide to the technique, and as instructions for swatching.

Row 1 (LS LC): purl. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Row 1 (LS DC): knit. Turn.

Row 2 (DS LC): knit. Do not turn, slide work to the other end of the needle.

Row 2 (DS DC): purl. Turn.


Chain Selvedge

When working the selvedge stitches at the beginning and the end of the row, at the start of the LC rows, always bring LC under the DC.



Leaf Patterns

Please note, that the brioche part of every leaf is the same, the difference is in the stitches that surround the leaf. There is a chart for every leaf pattern. Work from the written instructions or from the chart.

Also note, that the number of stitches in the leaf changes from 1 to 17 and back to 1. To compensate for these changes, there are increases and decreased in garter stitch to the left and/or to the right of the leaf. There are only 6 sts decreased or increased in garter stitch, while one side of the leaf is decreased or increased by 8 sts. The reason for this is because the gauge for the garter st is slightly greater than the gauge for the brioche leaf (plain brioche has the same gauge as the garter st).

SHAWL

The shawl is worked from the bottom up from the pointy end. The border of the shawl is formed of brioche leaves, which are symmetrical in respect to the central leaf. The beginning of every new pair of leaves is every 16th row, this forms the slanted border of the shawl. The first border leaf is also the first Central Leaf. Each leaf is separated from the other leaves with 2 markers (before and after the leaf). There is 1 stitch between the leaves and, therefore between the last marker of the previous leaf and the first marker of the next leaf. The Central Leaf pattern is repeated to the top of the shawl. Each Border Leaf is worked once, then from the top end of it the 3-Stitch Brioche Column is started and worked to the top of the shawl.

If you are going to use 11 solid color yarns to achieve a gradient in the DC, change the yarn color every 24 rows.

You can work as many repeats as you like your shawl to be. The last added Border Leaf will be the Right Edge Leaf and the Left Edge Leaf respectively. In my shawl I worked 13 Border Leaves and the 14th leaves were Edge Leaves. Work Right Edge Leaf and Left Edge Leaf to the last row (row 38). Bind off. I recommend to use I-cord bind off.
