Like a marquise cut diamonds, the lace pattern featured in this stole has elegant elliptical shapes that are multi-dimensional and beautiful from many angles.
The knit-in Moss st borders, along with the easy-to-follow lace pattern that runs the length of the stole (and scarf) make for a fairly quick knit with fabulous results. Knit it in a very soft, worsted-weight merino wool with a slightly heathered color, as shown, for even more added dimension.
The stole size is lovely to wear over your shoulders or around your neck as a generous and luxuriously warming scarf. Or for a faster knit, work up the narrower scarf version that is perfect for gift-giving or stash-busting.
This is a pattern that lends itself wonderfully to many worsted-weight options, and would be perfectly suited for that cashmere or alpaca blend you've been saving . . .

This is a gorgeous stitch pattern design. One of the prettiest I have ever knit. One I will want to use again and again.
Don't let the size of this chart or length of instruction intimidate you. The pattern becomes intuitive as you work. And exciting as you see each section evolve. I knit my version of Marquise as a shawl by adding an extra repeat. My yarn was a bit heavier so I ended up using a size 10 needle to get gauge and the effect of the lace that I liked. One thing I have learned with lace. Knit a swatch to see how the stitch pattern looks.
Sweater Babe, once again, has designed a beautiful lace garment for worsted weight yarn. A type of design you usually see designed for fingering weight or lace weight yarns. Using worsted weight for lace you have the satisfaction of seeing your lace design progress quickly and grow before your eyes.
