Buena Vista means “beautiful view” in Spanish. This stole’s namesake town in Colorado, surrounded by the 14,000-foot (4267-m) Collegiate Peaks, certainly does have beautiful views. For cool mountain nights, wrap up in the Buena Vista Stole; this Southwest-inspired shawl features graphic crosses, garter stitch, and simple lace for an unexpectedly impressive knit.
