Quick to knit with inexpensive supplies, this stole is a practical beauty, at once striking and wholesome. Painted wooden beads nestle in the middle of a high-relief lozenge motif and a beaded start and finish adds drama to a stole worked with deceptively easy increases and a centered double decrease.
