Birds and Bees Stole – pdf

$ 11.00 (USD)

pattern by Fiddlesticks Knitting

Lace motifs which include 'wings of the swan' and 'bee' inspired the Birds and Bees Stole. The wedge-shaped centre panel gives the stole a slightly Vee shape for ease in wearing, and creates two 'wings' of lovely lace on either side.

The stole begins with a centre panel from which stitches are picked up to work each 'wing.' Then, stitches are picked up all around and a simple garter stitch edging is worked in an optional second colour. This is a stocking stitch stole with lace on one side only, except for the delightful 'bee' motif (detailed explanation of how to work is included).
