Pattern Description:

Sometimes you just need to celebrate. Today I am celebrating one year of publishing knitting patterns. Whether you are celebrating a wedding, a graduation, a new dress, or a pretty day, this stole brings the party with
you wherever you go.

Stole is worked from each end in two halves and grafted
in the center.
There are four different streamers. All four can be beaded in the same color or you can use different colors. Each long streamer uses 451 beads. Each short streamer uses 332 beads. I used two colors of beads. The long streamers used silver lined, matte finish purple beads. The short streamers used dark green lined, transparent green beads with AB finish. The long streamer starts on Row 71 on the left side of the work. The short streamer starts on Row 35.
Both charted and written instructions are included. Written instructions begin on page 2 and charted instructions start on
