Secret of the Stole Finished!

Written by: Lindy

I finished the stole on Monday evening. I blocked it Tuesday evening, but did not have a chance to take photos until this morning. The finished fabric is very light and airy and I am very proud of my first laceweight knit stole. The stole measures 18 inches wide by 74 inches long. It is just the right size to wrap around one’s shoulders.
Many thanks to DK, the Nautical Knitter for the wonderful design and the KAL. I have greatly enjoyed participating in this project and I learned a great deal.

Here’s a close-up of the last section of this stole:
This section of the design is quite elaborate and complex — lots of yarn overs and decreases.

    It’s beautiful! I love the light color with the sparkle of the beads. Makes me wish I had done my stole in a light color instead of the drk purple I picked. Oh well…guess that just means I’ll have to do another one 🙂 Good Job!
