B&W aka boomerang is a large, reversible, extra soft, boomerang-shaped shawl with four different brioche stitch patterns. It is worked bottom up and starts with an I-cord, stitches are picked up & knit to start working two of the brioche stitch patterns. From here the shawl has an incorporated I-cord edge and the two stitch patterns at both sides are started.

The brioche stitch patterns are charted and written.
