Lines shoot diagonally and across this fun-to-knit stole. A single-ply yarn with bias is used to great effect in a suspended bead edging, hanging in delicate twists from each end.

Pattern includes both charted and fully written instructions, and also comes with a bonus PDF formatted especially for your e-reader or smartphone.

840yd/770m of lace weight yarn.

Note: A drapy single-ply with bias is recommended to obtain the twisted beaded fringe, otherwise the fringe will hang in loops instead of twists.
