Ewyn (Welsh, meaning ‘surf’) is inspired by shimmering ocean waves rushing to the beach and is offered in two shapes, a rectangular stole and a crescent wrap.
The stole is knitted sideways in one piece with the edgings worked along with the center. The size of the stole can be easily customized by working additional pattern repeats lengthwise and/or widthwise. The Ewyn Stole chart shows just a single repeat beaded at each edge, while the sample shows three repeats beaded at each edge; however, you can bead as many or as few repeats as you like. You can also skip the beads altogether and simply knit the stitches without the beads (6/0 4.0 mm seed beads, 100 for beaded edges as charted; 300 for triple beaded edges as shown in the sample).
The crescent’s lace border is knitted first; stitches are then picked up along the border’s top edge and simple stockinette short rows follow to create the crescent shape. You can skip the nupps in the lace border and replace them with beads, or simply knit the stitches without forming the nupps.
