Snowdonia is a shimmering stole with a variety of Estonian motifs reminiscent of the Welsh countryside, ranging from the scalloped waves of the Irish Sea to the leaves and stony flint trails of Snowondia’s rivers and forests. Knit in icy blue silk-cashmere blend, it also can’t help but bring to mind the snow-capped mountains of the Welsh wintertime.
This stole is worked in two pieces and grafted at the center, with no knitted-on borders to be found!
Snowdonia is perfect for wrapping, draping, tucking into coats and settling into on cool evenings.
Thank you to my fearless test knitters and tech editor Stephcat for your help! Thanks also to Nancy Bush and the inspirational stitch patterns in Knitted Lace of Estonia.
This stole has a “hanging” lattice border, where the long eyelet border extends beyond the bottom border. If you would prefer an exactly square border, I recommend working Row 1 of the Set-up Pattern (this is Row 1 of the first repeat only of the Left Leaf Chart/Eyelet Chart/Right Leaf Chart) as follows:
Row 1 (RS): Sl1, k4, yo, k5, k3tog, k5, yo, k3, yo, k5,
k2tog, place marker, k to last 29 sts, place marker,
k2tog, k5, yo, k3, yo, k5, k3tog, k5, yo, k5.
