The stole is worked from one short side to the other in a very elaborate and charming lace stitch that decorates it throughout.
All the edges are knitted in lace stitch and finished with an i-cord edge that gives it a more neat and finished look.
The making will be a bit time-consuming because it is really very wide, but the stitch pattern is not difficult to memorize and the end result is impressive.
If you wish, you can modify it a lot by simply varying the number of stitches to start, turning it into a square shawl or a narrower, shorter scarf.

Gauge:16 stitches and 32 rows= 4”/10cm

Needle: US  6 - 4.0 mm /US 11 - 8.0 mm

Actually, the swatch is not very important.
Instead, the final blocking step is essential to allow the stole to stretch to its final size and to allow the lace to “open.”

  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
  3. Soak work for 30 minutes or longer allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
  4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
