Create your own striped colorway, using this crescent-shaped stole with its wide bias ribs and knit-in fringe as your canvas. Use a couple of colors or a lot of them (my sample used seventeen colors, yarnartist’s stole (2nd from the top) used eleven). Make your stripes narrow or wide or mix them up.
Construction: Work stole in two sections and graft. Change colors or cut yarn every two rows, using loose ends to make up the fringe.
Finished size: 88” long by 14.5” wide including fringe.
Yarn: Sunday Knits 3-ply yarns (246 yd / 225 m per 50-gm skein, or any light sport or plump fingering weight yarn that works nicely to gauge. Work stripes in any number of colors: 850 yds total.
Needles & Notions: Size 5 US (3.75 mm) needles, tapestry needle, a row marker may be helpful.
Gauge: 25 stitches and 28 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch.
Skills used: Increases and decreases, wide rib, Kitchener stitch.
