A flowing sequence of leaf and flower motifs symbolic of the regal Scotch thistle combine into this beautiful lace stole.
Believe it or not, this complex-looking lace is based on a motif of just 10 stitches by 14 rows (of which only 7 rows are actual patterning with the other 7 rows being easy 'rest' rows of plain purling!). The elegance is in the different way the motif is arranged and repeated in the stole — the knitting is easy yet continues to be interesting throughout the project.
Select a yarn as soft as thistle down in colors of Scotch thistle as shown, or anything that delights your knitterly senses.
The stole is knitted in two pieces, then joined at the middle by an easy method that does not require grafting. The resulting seam is nearly invisible to all but the most discerning eye.
Finished size 15" by 60". 550 yards fingering weight yarn. Size 6 US (4 mm) needles suggested or size to give blocked gauge of 5½ stitches per inch over lace pattern. Shown in Schaefer Yarns Anne 60% merino wool superwash / 25% mohair / 15% nylon. Charted and written stitch instructions.
