Here We Go Again is a crazy wrap, just glorious to drape around your shoulders. Two hanks of contrast double-knitting yarn are used to create this shawl. You begin by creating a long narrow brioche piece of fabric, with an interesting flared end. The slipped stitches, at the long edge of the brioche piece, are picked up to work the striped stocking stitch section. It is enveloping; to swoosh around you for work or play.
