Gentle Breezes Stole

Gentle Breezes Stole
Gentle Breezes Stole
Gentle Breezes Stole

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarn over
  • stitch patterns are both charted and written
  • stringing beads (optional)

Pattern Description:

Picture early morning walks on the beach and looking out over gently breaking waves through the morning haze.

Fittingly, for the sample shown I chose a gently variegated gray/blue/green yarn in a color called Ocean Breeze. But feel free to choose yarn and bead colors to match the picture story you imagine of gentle breezes on a morning or evening walk.

The ends of the stole are done in a wide lace border reminiscent of breaking waves. Beads give a glint of sunlight off the waves. The main lace stitch pattern gives the feel of breezes and the gentle swells of the ocean.


20 stitches x 24.5 rows = 4" (10 cm) over lace patterns blocked


  • 850 yards lace weight yarn
  • size 6 US (4 mm) knitting needles suggested

You Will Also Need:

  • beads (optional)
