Cartouche Stole

I was paging through Japanese stitch dictionaries and found the main pattern used in this shawl.  It reminded me of an Egyptian cartouche and I visualized it in a deeper vibrant red.  That design, the Cartouche Shawl, was published in Knitty, Winter 2011.

I received a number of requests for a rectangular version using these stitch patterns.  The Cartouche Stole is worked in two sections, beginning with a provisional cast on in the centre back. The stitch patterns flow seamlessly one into another.  To accomplish this, transitional charts are used.  These are marked as such and must be followed with extra care as stitch patterns are altered to flow into the next design.
