A weightless, geometric, modern stole in Plains is elegant over a winter coat or a summer dress. Selune’s peaks and diamonds overlap to form graphic patterns of shifting scale; the motifs are easy to anticipate and read, so experienced lace knitters will only need to refer to the charts occasionally. The stole is knit in two pieces and grafted with Kitchener stitch at the center for perfect symmetry.
