Promenade Stole Pattern

Announcing the debut of my Promenade Lace Stole. This elegant lace design is rated Intermediate due to some patterning on wrong side rows and the addition of a lace edging at the beginning and end of the stole. Five columns of lace grace the body of the stole with a lovely meandering zigzag design formed by offsetting every other column. The pattern contains options for knitting the stole without the lace edging, a beading option, lace charts, blocking instructions and a few lace knitting tips.

My stole was knit from a 750 yard ball of fingering weight handspun on size 5 (3.75 mm) needles. To be safe, I'd recommend starting with 800 yards. Mine measured 62" x 15" when it came off the needles and 72" x 20" after blocking.

This lace pattern is a derivation of the Janus pattern from Barbara Walker's stitch treasuries. The lace edging is my own original design featuring a heart motif and a curving fern leaf. The heart motif is repeated in the body of the stole.

The pattern is a three-page pdf file with charts. As of January 24, 2008 the pattern includes line-by-line directions for the lace charts.

The pattern price is $4.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.
