Meaning bricks in Scottish Gaelic, Breigichean is a stunning, two colour, top-down, triangular shawl. The colourwork is done using mosaic knitting, so you’re only knitting with one colour at a time and the pattern is created through slipped stitches. Breigichean is a striking and dramatic shawl that’s fun to knit and easy to wear! Choose two solid/semisolid colours or a solid and a gradient for a truly special shawl!
The pattern is fully written and charted so whichever way you like to read your patterns, you’re covered! The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos.
