Q&A with Sister CG

skr3swr1559301 asked:
This is so lovely! I would love to make one for my son who will be ordained soon. Do you have a pattern you might sell?
Sister CG answered:
I beefed up the instructions, above. If I had a real pattern, I'd be happy to give it away! Blessings to your son on his ordination, and good luck with your stole! Would love to see a photo 8-)
Karin Bates Nuner asked:
I don't see any instructions of any kind. HELP
Sister CG answered:
Oh, wow. I guess Craftsy has changed the way one edits their own projects, and whatever I wrote as instructions has disappeared. I really made this up as I went along. As I remember the "blocks" were just strips of 1" (finished) pieces, about 5" or 6" long. Each block section was set off from the next with same size piece laid in as sashing. Sorry, wish I could be more specific, but that stole is long gone from our possession and from my head!
JudyL67438244 asked:
How do I purchase the pattern for this clergy stole. I would like to make one for my daughter
Sister CG answered:
Sadly I made this up as I went along. At one point I had the dimensions (at least) on this page, but it has disappeared. The stole is now out there in the world, so I can't recreate it. Basically it was just rectangles of about 1" wide x 5" long (finished), with binding. The point at the back was a simple 90 one, so the pieces looked "squared off". A 60 angle is a little better for stoles, but this worked. Hope that helps!
Danerys Dharma asked:
Can you share the pattern, I am a new Bishop and I will love to make one like this one.
Sister CG answered:
So sorry; would love to share but I made this up as I created it. I had it posted here early on, but for some reason it disappeared. If you read earlier posts here you can find what I remember about it. Blessings on this new phase of your ministry!
Margaret Oget asked:
Can you say more about the 60 degree angle? Would you recommend still doing rectangles but joining them to a rhombus instead of a true square? Is the stole set too narrowly?
Sister CG answered:
I made mine at 45 because I wanted a square for the back point so all the pieces of the block would match properly. With crocheting I think you could easily make the angle anything you want (with quilting too, depending on the block design). Yes, I think the 45 degree angle sets the stole just a little too narrow. It works if the back "drops" a little, though that doesn't always happen. The man I made this for is quite slim, and that helped. Good luck, and I'd love to see a photo of your finished project!
