A rectangular stole knit in wedges of three colors using simple short rows. The middle is worked first and then the two borders are knit in the round.

Skills needed:
 Long-tail cast on
 Short rows (directions included - this is a good first short-row project since you don’t need to pick up the wraps.)
 Increasing with kfb
 Picking up stitches

Gauge is not critical but will affect yardage required and finished size.

A note about gauge in garter stitch - garter gauge is difficult to measure because it is so very stretchy. This makes it difficult to get accurate yardage numbers. I’ve tried to give good estimates with a reasonable bit of padding.

Yardage breakdown:
For body - approximately 370 yards of color 1 (light grey in sample), 340 yards of colors 2 and 3.
For border - approximately 70 yards for inner border and 265 yards for outer border.
Total by color:
Color 1 (light grey in sample) - 370
Color 2 (dark grey in sample) - 605
Color 3 (red in sample) - 410

If you’re trying to use some of those single skeins in your stash, the outer border can be done in a 4th color.
