Bluestocking Stole

Bluestocking StoleBluestocking 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.
