Jade Dew Stole & Scarf to crochet

Jade Dew is a graceful leaf patterned stole to crochet. I named it after a Japanese tea leaf. It is dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

You’ll need 200 grams of fingering weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) hook for make the stole version. I used Knit Picks Palette in Clover green for my 25" wide x 66" long stole. (Instructions are included for making it wider and longer.)

Only two stitches -- dc and ch -- are used in this pattern though some stitch placement is a bit unusual. The chart will help you if you are confused by any of the written instructions. A two row border is worked around the outside edge of the stole. The pattern has line-by-line instructions and has a crochet symbol chart.

A bonus scarf pattern is also included. You'll need about 250 yards of fingering/sock weight yarn to make it. The pink and green scarf was made with Zauberball sock yarn. It's about 1/4 the width of the stole but the same length.

I really love how this turned out. I hope you do too. :-)

All profits of pattern sales through April 30 will be donated to the Mercy Corp for Japanese disaster relief. A payment of $77.00 was sent on May 3, 2011. Thanks everyone for contributing to this.

This pattern sells for $4.00 through my Ravelry pattern store.

That stole is sooooo beautiful! It's perfect for some leftover yarn I have in a colour called Tarragon. Lovely!
