Gardens of Giverny Stole is a rectangular version of Gardens of Giverny shawl.

Gardens of Giverny stole and the shawl was inspired by paintings of Claude Monet. He fell in love with Giverny while looking out of a train window. He bought a house and land and set out to create the magnificent gardens he wanted to paint. Some of his most famous paintings were of his gardens in Giverny. This stole is like his paintings — balanced brightly colored lace patches surrounded by simple garter frames.

Stole worked from one end to another in garter stitch with short row(no warps) sections of simple lace in-between. Size is completely customizable, it can be a big stole or a narrow scarf.
