Skill level: Intermediate. Basic brioche skills are not required, but are recommended. Techniques used for Rebel One: knit, brioche knit (brk), brioche increases and decreases. This cresent-shaped shawl is knit from center back down, with increases along the edges. Using a combination of radical increases and decreases, small brioche bobbles are created to adorn the top edging. The shawl is finished with a dramatic lace border, utilizing the same radical increases and decreases that were used for the edging, but in a more intricate way. The brioche lace was all inspired by Princess Leia’s iconic hairdo, the Rebel symbol, and galactic ships from Star Wars.
