Type of item: Accessory
Style: Classic, Traditional
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
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
