“Heavy clouds were putting out the stars.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Night Flight
A lightweight accessory to wear on cool summer evenings outside or for festive occasions to dress up your wardrobe.
The stole is knitted lengthwise from the bottom to the top. It is worked in a ribbed pattern which incorporates a small lace edge at the beginning and can be worked to any size that you would like to achieve. It could as well be a narrower scarf or an even wider stole. The top edge includes an eyelet row which will allow you to thread a ribbon through and wear it as a cape.
The pattern is written and includes a chart for the lace part.
