The Frail Shawl by Robynn Weldon is a beautiful brioche shawl worked using two colours of 4ply yarn to give the delicate skeletal effect of wintry leaves.
The shawl uses 100g (2 x 50g skeins) of Bedale 4ply in Dark Oak and 100g of Titus 4ply in Bark. This combination is stunning and gives a subtle yet effective contrast. As these colourways are not currently available, here is our selection of the best combinations using available yarns. 
1. Pendle 4ply in Compost /  Bedale 4ply in Green Tea
2. Hayton 4ply in Compost /  Nateby 4ply in Fen
3. Nateby 4ply in Tarn /  Titus 4ply in Campanula
