stole 2.0

Not sure the warmth and—let's face it—generous proportions of the alpaca scarf are for you? Here’s a lighter, version of the stole; more of a scarf, really. It's the perfect splash of color for the changing season, and the Shibui Linen drapes incredibly. Have fun!

For Linen Stole:

Scarf is approximately 10 inches wide and 90 inches long. Linen fabric is very stretchy, so dimensions will depend on blocking.

Materials: 1 skein each of Shibui Linen in following colors: Poppy, Graphite, Apple, Camel, and Brick.

Size US 8 needles

Gauge: 15 stitches = 4 inches

To knit:

With first color, loosely cast on 344 stitches and work 22 rows (according to pattern in Wearwithall: Knits for your Life) in each of the five colors, in this order: Poppy, Graphite, Apple, Camel, and Brick. Bind off loosely.

Your Shawl is lovely. Do you find it too light in weight or perfect for your cooler climate (Winter).

I was reading that you Casted on 344 stitches for the First Colour? I am wondering as that seems to be a large amount of stitches for just the First Colour, or is that total number of stitches right across the Stole?
Then my next question is what colour did you use to Cast on the 344 stitches across...before beginning to knit the First colour?
Or do you Knit Each Colour separately and not have 5 or 6 colours trailing across the row?

I have yet to buy the book? I am hoping there may be a Pamphlet for each of the patterns in the Wearwithall Book.
I only wish to knit that one pattern not any others....

Thank you so much and look forward in hearing from you.
Regards Sandy
