Garden strolls, a day at the Arboretum, visiting the Farmer's Market. . . all such outings deserve a stole like this that can keep you lookin' hip and stylish, and chase away any chill in the air.
A trio of stitch panels, each interesting in its own right, combine beautifully to run the length of this stole.
The different stitches complement each other and harmoniously create a handknit piece that will earn many oohs and aahs.
Knit this up, as I did, in a gorgeous heathered green and you will have a lovely piece that perfectly transitions your wardrobe from summer to fall and beyond.
Ribbed edgings are knit-in for a smooth, finished border. This is a piece that is both feminine and tailored, making it a great option to add to your weekend or office looks.

Result is really beautiful and gives a very comfortable yet elegant piece that you can throw around your shoulders very easily.
The different patterns add a little challenge to the knit.
Overall, excellent pattern and great result. Love it.
