Easy basketweave ribbing accentuates the rich tonal colours, making a project that is decadent in its ease and comfort. With two different yarn weight options, knitters of every style can knit this stole for perfect year-round wear.

The stole is worked flat from end to end.
The pattern is written to accommodate slight yardage variations in yarn. As you run out of yarn in one colour, simply join the next colour with your favourite method (such as wet splicing or knitting in ends as you go) and continue working as established.
The pattern is written with the Bulky number first and the Fingering number following in parentheses, like this: X (X).
