This stole is inspired by the rushing waters of a stream where waves shimmer in sunlight and splash along the edges. The lace borders are worked in a mirrored pattern forming attractive scallops along the length of the wrap. The long lines of yarn overs mimic the speed of rushing waters. Paired with easy decreases, these yarn overs also help simplify the knitting by acting as built-in stitch markers.

The center panels feature basic cables, which add extra texture and interest to the knit. The overall length of this stole can be easily customized because it is worked in one piece from end to end.

River is not a difficult project even for the beginner lace and/or cable knitter since the lace stitch pattern is easy to knit; the cables all cross in the same direction and the reverse rows are purled.

3-15-2011 Errata in River pattern
Lace chart:
Row 11: 7th square from the right should be ‘yo’
Row 13: 9th square from the right should be ‘yo’
The lace edges mirror each other, so the right side is the reverse image of the left side, which is correct.
Pattern directions:
(after the first RS row) Next WS row: Purl to last 2 sts, end p2tog (78 sts on the needle).
Corrected pdf was uploaded 3-15-2011, this errata occurs only in the older version.
