Orange Crush is light lacey stole that is easy to work on US 7 (4.5 mm) needle with one skein of Cascade Heritage Silk fingering weight yarn. You can use the print version instead.

Begin with a knitted lace border, reminiscent of orange wedges, then pick up stitches along the top edge and work the body of stole in an easily memorized four row lace pattern. Every other row is plain knit! Finally repeat the border lace edging joining to the body of shawl as you go. Only two ends to weave in with this construction method.

This is great carry with you project– light weight and simple. Orange Crush is reversible so you can wear your finished piece as a stole draped over your arms or “crushed” around your neck as soft silky scarf.

This is a Free pattern!
