This rectangular stole combines the modern with the traditional, the soft flowing quality of organic shapes with a streamlined geometric look. Worked in a gossamer lace yarn, Mistral Stole is knitted in two halves, from the center out to the more elaborate ends, using a temporary cast on.
Double yarn overs are worked in straight columns to give this shawl an unexpected deconstructed quality. These clean geometric lines are juxtaposed with the fluid organic shapes of the traditional melon stitch pattern. The melon stitch itself is updated and re-worked not only for easier execution, but also for more distinct and rounder shapes.
