The Brioche motif down the middle of this stole looks like grains on a sheaf of barley or wheat, hence the name Sheaves of Barley Stole. This is a long and wide stole, and the double-knitting of the brioche makes it quite thick. It’s great for cold weather. As all brioche, this stole is double-sided, but I personally liked the appearance of the lighter side better.

The stole is worked in 2-color brioche st from one end to the other. It starts from the pointy end. The increases are made on the wrong side of the stole inside of the Barley pattern (Right or Left). After the main part is worked, the creases are made in the same way to form another pointy end.

To knit this stole, you have to know how to knit 2-color brioche stitch.
