Rivulets of patterning run along this stole, with eyelets shifting, branching, and straightening in predictable sequences. The organic effect calls to mind creek beds, root systems, droplets coursing down a window. A meditative knit in laceweight Vale, Ravine is understated enough to elevate everyday outfits and needn’t be reserved for special occasions only. Worked flat from end to end, this pattern uses only the simplest techniques and is accessible to knitters who are new to lace.
