Millefeuilles was designed to fill my need for a splash of colour and dash of elegance as the seasons turn: a shallow crescent shawl or stole knit form tip-to-tip so that you can use every metre of that beautiful single skein.

Carefully shaped lace patterns begin and end this stole, so that the scarf grows out of the leafy design, and finishes neatly with an asymmetrical point.

With full charts and written directions, and a lace pattern which once established, is simply ten rows, worked over the 26 stitch border, interest is maintained throughout the length of the stole.

Samples were knit in Fyberspates Rural Charm 4ply (golden wheat) and Juno Fibre Arts Buffy sock (Ocean), but any 100 skein of sock-weight yarn with a little drape would work.

Consider using luxurious fibres or pure wool to make the most of the skein you have, or pick something new that isn’t too tightly spun or springy. I’m making another, just for me, in Eden Cottage Yarns Copper Bucket, and would recommend their Tempo or BFL Sock.
