Pattern Release : Leaf Stole

This stole is knit from a charted pattern that creates a full fabric with tons of texture and squish-ability. The 2 ply yarn from Bartlett Yarns offers a very ‘real’ fabric, that will wear well and continue to keep you warm for years.

At almost 6 ft long, this scarf can be wrapped a hundred times about your neck, hug your shoulders, or cover up those chilly knees whilst you knit. The ease of this pattern allows a lot of room for yarn substituting, and will work great with any type of worsted weight yarn.

Sizes : One size.
Measurements : 70” x 16” blocked.
Yarn : 4 skeins Bartlett Yarns 2ply [100% Wool, 4oz, 210yds], shown in ‘Willow’, or, 4 skeins Naturally Dyed by Annie Claire [100% wool, 4oz, 250 yds].
Needles : US 8 [5mm] straight or circular, or needle to obtain gauge.
Gauge : 18 sts and 24 rows = 4 inches in st st.
Notions : Stitch marker, tapestry needle.

As predicted, I messed up the sleeves on Cabled. It’s so much worse when you know that your screwing up as you knit, but you hold on to the hope that it’ll all work out in the end. ARGH. So at least for the moment I am completely unmotivated to carry on. Thankfully, just that same day, the yarn arrived in the mail for my Pinnate project. I’m already addicted, and have covered a lot of ground.

Sorry about the shoddy picture – my usual camera is at the menders.

Far better pictures were taken when I stopped into visit my friend Poppy at her studio – the home of Poppy de Garmo Photography.

She is a wonderfully creative person who inspires anyone she meets. Whats more, her work is stunning. Check her out! Especially her yoga portraits.
