A design inspired by the falling leaves of Autumn. The color was inspired by the same. This rectangular lace stole is worked in two separate halves. The first half is cast on at the outer edge and worked in towards the center. After the first half is complete, stitches are put on a holder and the second half is worked in the same manner as the first. After both halves have been completed, the live stitches from both sides are grafted together invisibly using Kitchener Stitch (see schematic on previous page). This directional method is used so that lace motifs are vertically mirrored on both halves.

Please note: the stitch patterns in this garment are charted only.
