There is a friendly competition between knitters and crocheters that I believe makes both crafts even more fun. I saw a crocheted cowl with a lovely rose leaf pattern and had to try it in a knit. The project evolved from a cowl to a stole with the added step of working a scarf. I could not decide on the stole or the scarf so we have both! Although Euroflax can be a bit hard on the hands to work with, repeated machine washings and dryings will make this project your go-to wearable for warm weather.
Yarn Requirements: Lofty Fiber Euroflax Sport Weight 100% Wet Spun Long Linen (270 yd per 100g skein); Scarf shown in #47 Terra Cotta, 2 skeins; Stole shown in #34 Orchid 3 skeins
Needles: Scarf US 5 3.75 mm straight needles; Stole US 5 3.75 mm 29” circular needle
Notions: Stitch markers, Stitch holders or waste yarn, Tapestry needle, Blocking wires and T-pins
Gauge: 24 sts and 28 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch, blocked. Gauge is not critical for this project but a different gauge will affect size and yarn requirements. It may be necessary to unravel your gauge swatch and reuse the yarn.
Notes: Project is worked in two sections from the ends to the center where the sections are grafted together. Selvedges are worked in garter stitch with the first stitch slipped on every right side row. To insure that you have enough yarn to work both sections of the scarf, use one skein for each section. For the stole, divide one skein in half and use 1.5 skeins for each section. If necessary, work fewer vertical repeats of the stitch pattern for your chosen project.
Pattern is presented in both written and charted forms.
