Riviera Nights Stole

Hitch: Patterns Inspired by the Films of Alfred Hitchcock
Knitting
August 2013
Sport / 5 ply (12 wpi) ?
17 stitches and 24 rows = 4 inches in stocking stitch
US 6 - 4.0 mm
880 yards (805 m)
one size 60" x 22" (150 cm x 55 cm)

In the 50’s and 60’s, this classic stole might have been worn over a strapless evening dress or a tailored day dress. It’s a look that Grace Kelly as Francie might have worn in To Catch a Thief for those Riviera nights with a hint of chill.
The black and white color scheme is simple and dramatic.

For versatile modern usage, it could be worn as a scarf or wrap to accent a dress, jacket, or top.

There will be a KAL for this shawl in April 2014 in the Hitch Rav group -- but feel free to start your stole anytime!

Construction
The stole is comprised of two rectangles, each bisected into a black and a white triangle, using intarsia to create the design. Increases and decreases keep the intarsia border straight and even.
Applied i-cord provides an elegant, smooth edging. A little bit of ribbing at the edges adds stability and helps prevent curling.

Stole can easily be made larger or smaller simply by casting on more or fewer stitches.
