Due to the temporary closure of my business, all my self published designs with costs are set on inactive. A re-opening is not scheduled at this moment.

Stola Farfalla is an exclusive design in collaboration with Expression Fiber Arts. It combines the Estonian Poollehekiri stitch pattern with a beautiful butterfly inspired lace border to create an elegant stole gently coming to rest on your shoulders. Yak and silk are a perfect fibre combination for this wonderful design. Yak, almost as soft as cashmere but stronger and warmer, combined with the lustre and softness of the silk, are wonderful to knit with.

This pattern is tech edited, tested, and includes written instructions and charts with bead placement.

Yarn and Yardage: Expression Fiber Arts Yak Silk, 2 skeins (1260 m / 1774 yd)

Gauge: It is not easy to measure the gauge in the body lace (Chart 1), but you should have 4.5 cm / approx. 1.75 in from bead to bead counted over 12 rows and 7.5 cm / approx. 3 in counted over 12 sts stretched out. A difference in your gauge will affect the yardage. I do highly recommend to use a digital scale to check your remaining yarn. I have weighed my skeins after every 5 body charts and, once I have reached 20 body charts, after each body chart thereafter.

Needles and Other:

  • 4 mm / US 6 circular needles or size to obtain gauge
  • 11 stitch markers
  • row counter
  • a bit under 40 g of size 8/0 Miyuki or Toho beads (10 g is approx. 400 beads)
  • crochet hook 3.5 mm / E for provisional cast on and alternative crochet bind off
  • crochet hook 0.5 mm (or 0.6 mm) to attach the beads
  • tapestry needle to weave the ends in
  • a digital scale to check the used yarn amount
