Errata Note: There is a minor error in the written instructions for the Set-up Section, Row 4. This row begins with a P11, not a P1. The chart for this section is correct as shown.


Diagonal lace mesh alternating between vertical cabled rib motifs that are worked on the bias creates an interesting result in the direction of the fabric.

Knit in a chunky-weight yarn, this stole is lightweight, warm, and quick to work up, with a simple rhythm that is easily memorized after the first few repeats.

Working the 2-stitch cables without a cable needle makes it fly off the needles even faster.
