Pattern Details

The Liz Stole is a rectangular, light-as-a-feather lace stole that is a re-imagining of my Elizabeth triangular shawl pattern. The design combines the same classic Shetland motifs with a minimalist construction method, resulting in a contemporary stole that is fun to knit and versatile to wear. The Liz Stole may look complicated, but it uses only six simple stitches and is quite easy to knit. (Don't tell non-knitters that, of course!) And the sampler nature of the design ensures that you will not be bored, as the motifs change rather frequently. The pattern includes both full written instructions and large, easy-to-read charts. Since it is very adaptable to your preferred width or length, there are also detailed instructions to adjust the size larger and smaller, including yardage estimates. IMPORTANT: Lace weight yarn is highly recommended for this pattern in order to capture the ethereal quality of the design. The Liz Stole will beautifully showcase your favorite subtly-variegated hand-dyed, tonal or solid colored yarn. Highly variegated yarns are not recommended as they will obscure the pretty Shetland lace patterns. This is an excellent pattern for those of you new to working provisional cast ons. I have included detailed instructions to show you how, including helpful hints and a video link. Construction Notes: The Liz Stole is worked seamlessly in two mirrored halves starting from the center using a provisional cast on and worked down to both ends. There is no grafting. All wrong side rows are purled between the garter borders. I highly recommend that you set the "Page Scaling" on your Adobe Acrobat printing window (left side) to NONE in order for the charts to print as large as possible. ----------------------------- 1/16/13 PATTERN UPDATE: I updated the Liz Stole pattern today due to a few errors that were just discovered. The good news is that there are no errors in the charts themselves, but there were a couple in the text regarding pattern repeats as well as the written instructions. If you purchased the pattern after today, your copy is the most current and correct one. If you purchased before today, please download the pattern again for the most current version. Please email me at the address printed at the bottom of the pattern for more details if you like.

Hi! I am a former professional guitarist who is very grateful to be a full time knitting pattern designer. I made all my clothes and jewelry as a hippie girl many years ago, and had a little cottage industry of selling my handcrafts to friends in high school. I later turned to music and put down all the needles and hooks and soldering guns and whatnot for over 30 years. I picked up knitting again a few years ago, but really kicked into gear in earnest June 2008 when I used it as a quit smoking aid. And then I discovered lace and shawls.... and the rest is history, as they say.
