Please note:
Velvet is offered as pattern for a stole and there is the separate pattern for the scarf, which does look completely different, but is based on the same technique.

The scarf pattern includes charts only
The stole pattern includes written pattern only. No charts, because the pattern is hard to visualize as chart.

Just a short note for the ones who don’t have Wollmeise DK yarn. At least in Germany there is a good substitute yarn available: “Big“ by Lana Grossa. It’s yardage is 240 m per 100 g. Maybe you need some more sts to cast on at least for the scarf.

The texture of the yarn is similar to Wollmeise DK. Wollmeise DK yardage is 214 m per 100g.

Cable stitches: although the directions suggest the use of a cable needle for the 2x2 cabling, I highly recommend cabling without a cable needle. This is a much faster and time saving method. If you are not familiar with this method check out videos on YouTube as shown here.

The scarf is worked from the bottom up using one skein of Wollmeise DK.
