Knitting Notions is a family owned and operated business. We opened in 2005 with our first product, our handmade Yarn Swifts, and have added to our product line as our business grew. We now produce a large line of handmade wood and leather products as well as hand dyed merino wool yarns. 99% of the products that we sell are made by us or another American small business.
Liz is a light-as-a-feather lace stole that is a re-imagining of my Elizabeth triangular shawl pattern. The design combines the same classic Shetland motifs with a minimalist construction method, resulting in a contemporary stole that is fun to knit and versatile to wear as either a stole or a wide scarf.
Liz may look complicated, but it uses only six simple stitches and is quite easy to knit. (Don’t tell non-knitters that, of course!) And the sampler nature of the design ensures that you will not be bored, as the motifs change rather frequently
This is an excellent pattern for those of you new to working provisional cast ons (see the Construction Notes below). I have included detailed instructions to show you how, including helpful hints and a video link.
The pattern includes both full written instructions and large, easy-to-read charts. Since the design is very easily adaptable to your preferred size and width, there are also detailed instructions to adjust the size, including yardage estimates.
Lace weight yarn is highly recommended for this pattern in order to capture the ethereal quality of the design.
The Liz Stole will beautifully showcase your favorite subtly-variegated hand-dyed, tonal or solid colored yarn. Highly variegated yarns are not recommended as they will obscure the pretty Shetland lace patterns.
