What materials did you use? I made the pictured stole with 2 skeins of Mountain Colors Bearfoot color Harmony Garnet. Bearfoot is a fingering weight 60% Wool, 25% Mohair, 15% Nylon with 400 yards / 100 grams per skein.

What are you most proud of? I devised a special technique to alternate two balls of hand dyed yarn every row in a way that avoids both yarn strands being carried up the same edge. Detailed instructions are provided in the pattern.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Size: 18" by 64" Yarn: fingering weight: 2 skeins at 400 yards each (total 800 yards) Suggested needles: US 7 (4.5 mm); although the stole is knitted flat, a circular needle is required so that knitting a row can begin from either end of the needle Gauge: 19 stitches = 4 inches Other notions: tapestry needle for finishing ends blocking board and rust proof blocking wires/pins Construction: beginning cast on is 88 stitches; worked flat in rows from end to end in one piece; no sewing or grafting Stitches used: knit, purl, knit 2 stitches together, purl 2 stitches together, slip, pass slipped stitch over, yarn over Stitch instructions: charted and written Special technique: alternating 2 skeins of hand-dyed yarn every row in a way that avoids both yarn strands being carried up the same edge Skill level: intermediate with an open mind to working rows of knitting in an uncommon sequence
