“Crotatting is traditionally used for lace and I wanted to show how versatile it can be. This stole uses 4ply cotton but is still light and lacy.”

10 balls DMC Natura N28 Zaphire.
10 balls makes a stole 5 motifs (approx 55cm) wide and 15 motifs (approx 275cm) long.

2.50mm bamboo or wooden hook adjusted for crotatting, needle for sewing in ends.

Don’t try to join the yarn in the middle of a motif. If you don’t have enough of the ball left for the main motif, start a new one and use the end of the other for the filler motifs.

I have not included any basic instructions on how to crotat in this pattern.
