A wrap worked in a luxurious yarn is such a treat, and makes an elegant addition to any outfit. This design by Elizabeth Lovick uses Eden Cottage Yarns’ Askham 4ply, which blends baby alpaca and silk for a light yet warm fabric with a subtle gleam. “The patterns for this stole have been taken from the three-volumed stitch dictionary of Austrian stitches, Bäuerliches Stricken, by Lisl Fanderl, published by Rosenheimer,” says Elizabeth.
