Father is a classic boomerang-shaped shawl that starts with a tiny cast on at one corner. Squishy garter stitch is broken up with ridiculously easy and straightforward bits of brioche. (This brioche is perfect for brioche rookies!) The shawl branches out into basic lace at the end to create a beautiful drape.
