Bluestocking Stole by Manda Shah, from Knitting Traditions Spring 2016
Not too easy but not too difficult to make, this stole was born out of an idea of using a lace panel and mirroring its halved portion instead of repeating the same panel widthwise. Basic lace stitches combined with nupps provide the shape and a delicate look from start to finish.
Finished Size 13″ wide and 76″ long, blocked.
Yarn Malabrigo Yarn Lace (100% baby merino wool; 470 yd [430 m]/1¾ oz [50 g]): #30 purple mystery, 1 skein (see Notes).
Needles Size 5 (3.75 mm): 16″ circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Notions Tapestry needle.
Gauge 16 sts and 22 rows = 4″ in lace patt, blocked.
