Inspired by a line of poetry from William Butler Yeats, this modern honeycomb lace stole is distinguished by rays of stockinette bursting from one corner.

Bristol Ivy is known for garments and accessories with innovative, geometric forms, such as Thorn (Wool People 4), Svalbard (Wool People 6), and Keel (Wool People 8). Now she gives us an inversion of the positive and negative space relationships often found in asymmetric shawls.

Gyre is worked entirely from charts in three skeins of Loft; choose a bright, fresh hue for the perfect summer accessory. The pattern includes a photo tutorial on the Russian Join, a technique that joins a new ball of yarn with no weaving of ends and without the thickening and stiffness of a spit splice.
