Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood in northern Oregon is the inspiration for this piece. Its many gabled facade and the majestic peak directly behind it are echoed in the triangular insertions I used in the stole. A “timberline” is the demarcation on a mountain where trees no longer grow above that altitude. The lodge is so named because it sits at just that mark of the 11,000 ft mountain in the Pacific Cascades.
The green triangles are filled with ubiquitous fir tree figures and snowflakes make up the white triangles between them. I used a unique-to-me-method of joining the units as they are knit; at least I have not seen it used previously.
This stole takes approx 70 gms of the green and 50 gms of the natural.
First, each Green Tree Triangle is knit as a separate module. Then the White Snowflake Triangles are knit, one at a time, and joined as you knit to a Green Tree Triangle on either side. Finally an edging is worked sideways to BO all the live sts from the triangles.
On the Green Tree Triangle chart, there should be a YO on row 11, 4th box from the left.
On the Tree Edging Chart 2, Row 19, there is one too many K st boxes there in the middle. It should read, from right to left, Sl 1, K1, YO, K2tog, K5* (instead of K6), K2tog, YO, K2tog, K1.
