During a class on charting lace with Joan Kass, I was inspired by one of her stitch patterns and this pattern was the “jumping off point” for rows 11 to 18 of this pattern.

This wrap is worked along the length and the size can easily be adjusted by altering either the stitch count (length) or number of row repeats (width).

Pattern includes both a chart and written out instructions.

Yarn A: 3 skein Classic Elite Allegoro (50 gr/152 yds), colour 5650 Cerignola

Yarn B: 3 skeins Nashua Handknits Desert Flower (50 gr/112 yds), colour 3564 Cornsilk

This pattern looks equally lovely worked in lace weight yarn (approximately 700 - 800 yards) and results in a stole of similar size.

4.5 mm or US #7, 32” long (or size required to obtain gauge)

This pattern includes lace work in row 6, a wrong side row. The stitch key on page two includes special instructions for working this row.

Use of stitch markers (every 16 stitches) will be helpful during first set of row repeats, to help “read” your knitting.

Skills Required:

  • Stretchy cast-on and cast-off
  • Lace stitches (yo, ssk, k2tog, p2tog, p2tog tbl, centred double decrease)
  • Blocking

Errata (June 25, 2010):
Row 6 (WS) should read: “k1, (yo, p2tog, yo, p1, yo, p2tog twice, k1, p2tog tbl twice, yo, p1, yo, p2tog tbl, yo, k1) 16 times.”

The PDF version was updated on June 25, 2010. If you downloaded the file prior to that date, please download a new copy. Update also includes yardage, needle size and finished measurements for laceweight version. A larger version of the chart has also been included.
