September’s stole is inspired by the colors and shapes of harvest. Berries, tomatoes, and root veggies all racing against the oncoming winter frost. This pattern is paired with two recipes:
Fall roasted reds with crispy seeds and parmesan
Red quinoa, spinach, and feta salad

The name Puncia is derived from the latin name for pomegranates. A long rectangular stole, Puncia is knit from the edges to the center in two pieces. The two halves are grafted together at the center once finished. This allows you to use every last yard of yarn.

Pattern Notes
This wide rectangular shawl is knit from the edge toward the center in two halves which are then grafted at the center.
