A weightless, geometric, modern stole in Plains is elegant over a winter coat or a summer dress. Selune’s peaks and diamonds overlap to form graphic patterns of shifting scale; the motifs are easy to anticipate and read, so experienced lace knitters will only need to refer to the charts occasionally.

Please note: the stitch patterns in this garment are charted only.
