Baltic Sea Stole (AC50)
Faina’s memories of time spent on the shores of the Baltic Sea inspired the name of this lovely lace stole. She cleverly worked increases and decreases into the pattern that allow the seed stitch borders to remain straight while they frame the waves of lace that flow back and forth. (Fiber Trends)
This piece can easily be made wider or narrower by adding or subtracting pattern repeats (15 stitches each) or by changing the yarn weight and needle size. Size changes will effect the yardage requirements.
Approximately 900 yards of sport weight mohair or wool yarn.
Pattern may also be made in lace weight using a smaller needle. This will make a narrower stole. Adjust width size by adding pattern repeats. Yardage needed will also change.
Needles: U.S. size 8 (5mm) straight or circular needles
Optional: rustproof pins; blocking wires
Written and charted 32-row pattern. Stole features seed stitch border.
