Shibori Interlude Stole

from LaurieBea Knitting
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Shibori Interlude Stole
Shibori Interlude Stole
Shibori Interlude Stole
Shibori Interlude Stole photography by Sandy McAnally

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl

Pattern Description:

Evoking images of Japanese fabric, this light, airy rectangular stole looks like it has been tie dyed. You'll love the drape of the finished fabric. Work in with solid colors for a high-contrast Arashi Shibori look, or with variegated yarns for a more subtle effect.

This stole is knit loosely and then blocked to achieve its open look. It is worked in garter stitch short rows, with both colors carried along the sides, so there are no ends to weave in at the color changes.

For a more more flowing, rippled version, see its companion, The Shibori Horizon Stole.

The finished stole measures 70" long and 17" wide.

Requires 400-450 yards (365-415m) each of two different colors of lace weight yarn.

Suggested experience level: advanced beginner - short row techniques are explained in the pattern. It would be a good pattern to learn how to work with laceweight yarn.
