Stashbusting & Choosing Colors: The pattern includes a guide to choosing yarn & changing colors to create an exciting fabric from all your most gnarly sock yarn, scraps and mini skeins. Of course, we encourage you to #knityourstyle, one could always go subdued and choose less variegated skeins, solid colors, fewer colors, etc.

New to brioche?: We rate this pattern as adventurous beginner brioche: the pattern is repeated over the entirety of the shawl and there is only one type of increase and one type of decrease to knit. 

Video tutorials are included for the decreases in continental & english style, however, due to the low contrast in such highly variegated yarns, brioche beginners may find it useful to use stronger contrasting colors for ease of "reading" brioche stitches.
