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. Not a fast knit though. And while the pattern is very clear written and easy to follow, it is less of a relax knit as you constantly move between knit & purl and pull out your cable needle all the time.
Two comments on the pattern
- I printed the 3 different patterns all together on 1 separate page, so you don't have to go back and forth through the pages.
- Perhaps to my shame, I did not right away understand what 'Rev. St st.' means and had to look it up. Perhaps could just be explained in the section 'techniques used'?
Overall, excellent pattern and great result. Love it.
