Project

Yvette's Stole

What are you most proud of? That I designed it myself without a pattern, because I refused to spend 40 dollars for the only pattern I could find. I also love the way the colors blend. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it. It was very easy to do.

Q&A with Sue P.

Surfside6 asked:
Beautiful. You are brave. Seems like you might have a little cottage industry in the making. I have a friend in the religious community who has some of the most gorgeous fabrics I have ever seen made into special robes for holidays
Sue P. answered:
We shall see if any of those 10 actually call me! Since I teach, my time is very limited from Aug-May. I made the stole in the summer! It would be fun, though, especially as I am nearing retirement.
Colleen C asked:
Beautiful! I like you have a friend who was just ordained. I would love to make her one just like this. I am guessing the stole in 4 1/2 inches. Where did you find the French braid pattern that size or did you just cut it down?
Sue P. answered:
I believe that the strips were 4-1/2 and 5-1/2 inches wide before trimming. I used a square to start the braid, and a square to attach the 2 ends together. I believe I made it the same size as in the book. I'm leaving for vaca in an hour; if you need more info, message me and I'll answer when I get back.

This is lovely! What pattern did you use? Thank you
Sue P. answered:
Thanks! I didn't have a pattern. I saw a French Braid and since it fit what I had in mind, which was to use all the liturgical colors except white, I went with that. I couldn't find a pattern for any kind of quilted stole anywhere.
