Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Holiday 2008: “Charlene Schurch uses the lightness and fluidity of cashmere/silk blends and an unusual construction to create a richly patterned stole with warmth and movement. Knit in the round from the outer edge in to a grafted center, the Frost Flowers Stole looks intricate but uses just two motifs.”

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere (55% silk, 45% cashmere; 400 yd 366 m/55 g): #052 old roses, 3 skeins.

Needles: Size 6 (4 mm): 40” circular (cir) and one spare needle. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Four markers (m; one in a contrasting color); cotton waste yarn; tapestry needle.


  • Stitches on chart do not align between Rows 15 and 16 and between Rows 30 and 31. Work these rows as noted in pattern instructions.
  • The pattern repeat is 31 stitches wide.
  • Tie waste yarn into loops to be used as markers.
