"Adela" means graceful and noble, which makes it a fitting name for this lovely stole. Its silky quality comes from the loosely plied cashmere and merino wool blend yarn worked on a slightly larger needle.
The yarn glides between your fingers easily as you work the beautiful lace pattern, which only consists of simple decreases and yarn overs. A wide 2x2 rib is knit only on one edge for a little asymmetry.
The lace pattern features pretty diamond shapes with embossed edges that give the finished shawl lots of textural interest and eye-catching appeal.
Knit it in the creamy white, as shown, to emphasize its soft-as-a-cloud status. Self-scalloping edges where the lace begins and end add an additional feminine touch.
Perfect as your day into evening wrap or as a super cozy (and ultra luxe!) scarf.
