Everyone Will Want to Steal This Stole

The word “stole” brings to mind the early decades of the 20th century, when ladies dressed for nights on the town in fur stoles and elegant dresses. The Festoon Stole isn’t made of fur, but it will still dress up any outfit you choose to pair it with! Its V-stitch body contrasts beautifully with the lacy edging to create something you’ll be proud to wrap around you. Not too wide and a great length to drape around your neck multiple times, this stole will be sure to grab the attention of whoever sees it.

In fact, we were so sure that you’d love this project we turned it into a kit! Complete with all the yarn you’ll need to make this lovely wrap, this kit is sure to be your go-to project this summer. Sugar Bush Yarns Itty-Bitty is a superfine merino/nylon/cashmere blend that won’t make you too warm as you stitch.

Once you’re done appreciating the yarn’s fiber content, check out the color! It’s a beautiful combination of blues and greens that will remind you of days spent on your favorite lake. I’m originally from Ohio, so this color and its name—Erie Shores—definitely caught my eye, especially since I’ve spent time on the shores of Lake Erie almost every year since I was 3 years old. In fact, if the project itself hadn’t sold me on the kit, I might have gotten it for the yarn alone!

Now that I’ve almost stolen the show talking about the yarn (Get it? “Stole”n?), let me give you the rest of the details!

This long summer scarf features an open wave pattern with fanning edges perfect for a bright garden party.
