This gem of a stole is made in jewel-tone colors of narrow lace strips that are joined as the panels are knitted, thus eliminating the need for any sewing later on. The undulating edges around the stole and between the strips add movement and interest to this eye-catching stole. An unusual feature is that the panels are worked in the opposite direction of the panel to which they are joined, thus creating vertical symmetry of the tear-drop pendant motifs across the six adjoining panels. Another feature of the stole is a lengthwise separation to form two narrower sections of three strips each that give variety to the ways this stole can be worn. We especially like to wear this style with the wider section laying on one shoulder and the 'tails' simply flung over the other shoulder. Stitch instructions are written. Special techniques used and described: - chain selvedge edge - p2tog bind off - attaching a strip of knitting to another strip as you knit BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarn over GAUGE 5 stitches per inch over lace stitch pattern SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size fits all Finished measurements after blocking: 50" by 22" SUGGESTED YARN 675 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Himalaya Duke Silk COLORWAY Shown in Himalaya Duke Silk yarn, 100% silk: 3 - 100g skeins total.
