I am glad to be sharing the pattern to knit the June Stole
(#junestole) with you all. My motivations and inspiration can be found in my Mayday - The Handmaid’s Tale blog post and if you haven’t read it yet, I’d love you to; because it’s a very personal motivation that I’d love to share with anyone knitting this stole :)

When I first laid this design out, I wanted a symbolic garment: a uniform. A symbolic language requires simple and well defined ideas in order to work out, that’s why I simplified the design to the max, to express my sensations after watching the TV series I am paying a tribute to, “The Imprisoned Femaleness”


  • 800 m (875 y) fingering weight yarn, in red
  • 4mm (US 6) circular needles, 60 or 80 cm (24” or 32”) cable. It can also be knit with straight needles.


Gauge is not important, the finished measurements will vary with your tension, but not greatly. If you are a very tight knitter you can go up a needle size, 4.5mm (US 7) to get a stole with more/better drape.
