Bright brioche is the key to a vibrant K-Pop shawl!
I am so honoured my long - distance friendship with Kyounghui Kim (aka Auntie K ♥) has led me to collaborate with Korean dyer Manbok.
I wanted this shawl to reflect the positive energy and renewed enthusiasm for knitting and life in general I always get from chats with K!
K – Pop is a deep crescent shape that is just like a pair of arms hugging you to keep your shoulders and your heart warm, in a combination of 3 bright colours that are instant mood – lifters. The brioche pattern is fun and easy to master, a real treat for brioche lovers .
