THIS IS AN EXTREMELY VERSATILE DESIGN THAT CAN BE WORN BUTTONED AS EITHER A SHRUG, COWL OR IF YOU PREFER, UNBUTTONED AS A SCARF. THE ORIEL STITCH IS A
BEAUTIFULLY TEXTURED LACE PATTERN THAT COMBINES YARN OVERS, DECREASES AND PURL STITCHES. THESE BUILD TO CREATE A FISH SCALE EFFECT THAT BEGINS WITH
DELICATE BEADED DROPLETS AT THE CAST ON EDGES AND TRAVELS TOWARD THE GRAFTED CENTRE OF THE DESIGN WITH BEADED ACCENTS HIGHLIGHTING THE CENTRE OF EACH MOTIF.

THIS PATTERN WAS FIRST PUBLISHED IN THE
DECEMBER 2011 ISSUE OF KNITTING MAGAZINE AND SOME AMENDMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE NUMBER OF BEADS USED IN THE ORIGINAL PATTERN.

AS ALPACA IS A HEAVIER FIBRE RELATIVE TO PURE WOOL THESE CHANGES AIM TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF BEADS (AND THEREFORE WEIGHT)
IN SOME OF THE SIZES.
