FO report

By | January 12, 2015

Remember that swatching I did a few weeks back? For the stole with a bend in it? Well, over the weekend I finished the stole.

From the back, it looks like your typical triangle shawl:

with a single pattern repeat running nicely down the middle,
and new repeats radiating off on each side

From the front, it looks more like a ruana:

no shawl pin necessary!

As I’d hoped, the stole sits securely on the wearer’s shoulders, making it very easy to wear. Hmm. I may need to make more stoles in this shape, just for that reason.

Oh, that looks really cool! I love shawls with interesting shapes.

Nice! Love the shape and the color.

Wow, nice shape! Will the pattern be available?

I’m not sure, Shelda. I knit it up mostly as an experiment and class sample, and haven’t really been planning on writing up the pattern.
