Misty Lace Scarf and Free Stole Pattern Guidelines

Finally took a pic of another work in progress – the Misty Lace Scarf using the Kollage that B gave me.  It’s a beautiful yarn, little difficult to keep the strands together but not hard if I actually concentrate.  I’m loving the blues with silvery accents.

I’m surprised by how soft it really is even with the little metallic stranding.

Here are the general guidelines for the Heidi Stole pictured below:

Cast on number of stitches appropriate to yarn/needle size in a multiple of 18.  This one was done on sz 6 circulars using Knit Pick’s Gloss.  The recipient is a very petite woman so it’s only about three quarters as wide as I’d do for myself. Remember – it’s a flat stoleruffle2knit on circs. so knit/purl back and forth as usual.

Modified Feather and Fan Pattern

Row 1: Knit
Row 2: K3, P to last 3 stitches, K3
Row 3: K3, *(K2 tog) 3 times, (yo, K1) 6 times, (K2 tog) 3 times, repeat from * to last 3 sts, K3
Row 4: Purl across
Repeat rows until about five inches shorter than desired length

Knit right side rows, purl wrong sides adding random eyelets if you want to for three inches or so.

On right side (Knit) row knit in front and back (make 1) every third stitch.
Purl wrong side.
Knit right sides, purl wrong sides for next inch.

On right side row knit in front and back (make 1) every other stitch.
Purl wrong side.
Knit right sides, purl wrong sides for another inch.

Bind off.
