A gorgeous cable panel and lacy leaf panel travel in perfect harmony along the length of this generous rectangular stole (or scarf).
Both stitch designs gently wave in sync, creating a pretty curved edge along one long edge. Knit in the fabulous Ultra Alpaca yarn from Berocco for a very luxe feel, stunning heathered color, and great stitch definition.
Garter stitch edging is knit-in all around for the finishing touch. Wear the versatile stole around your shoulders, draped or wrapped, or use it as a very cozy scarf! It will easily become your must-have item whenever you walk out the door.
Smaller Scarf size instructions included as well.

I made the stole version for my mom. Since she was going to be using it at work, she didn't want me to get expensive yarn so I used Lion Brand Heartland anniversary edition in Isle Royale. It turned out beautifully.

I thought this pattern was easy to follow and worked up fairly fast.
