Inspired Stole / Cowl

By Caroline Sommerfeld

This stole captures the look of ocean waves rolling onto the beach, just as the sun rises.  Lace repeats change in length, as do the waves as they march closer into shore.

This easy-to-knit lace creates all the shaping of the stole, and takes advantage of the colour pooling properties of hand painted yarns. The pattern includes complete instructions for how to use any type of hand painted yarn, and is also suitable for knitting with non-pooling yarns or tone-on-tone colours. The pattern may be made into a cowl or a stole (as shown).


One size fits all.

Stole measures approximately 80” long x 18” wide.

Cowl measures approximately 40” long x 18” wide.

Suggested Yarn:

Stole uses 2 skeins Ancient Arts 400m/437 yds 4 ply fingering/sock weight yarn.

Cowl uses 1 skein Ancient Arts 400m/437 yds 4 ply fingering/sock weight yarn.

Sample shown in Inspired colour way.
