Easy Knit Stole

This stole adds a romantic layer to any glamorous outfit, where you feel the need for a little extra coverage.

This design looks beautiful and is so soft and light, gives warmth without feeling heavy for that special night out.

The pattern is so easy and hardly takes anytime at all.

You'll need size 6.5mm needles

The tension guide is 14 sts and 19 rows over 4inches/10cm

K- knit
P- purl
St st- stocking stitch (knit across front row, purl across back row)

Using eyelas type yarn cast on 115sts. Work in St st for 10 rows. Change to contrast yarn and work 10 rows St st . Repeat 3 times then change to eyelash yarn and work 8 rows St st. Cast off.

Begining from cast on row, work blossom trim (or edging of your choice) along all edges.
