Scotch Thistle Lace Stole is a flowing sequence of leaf and flower motifs,
symbolic of the regal Scotch thistle, combined into this beautiful lace stole.
As with the stately thistle where
taller leaf stalks form at base of the plant and dainty flower heads adorn tips
of the stalks, the lace leaf and flower motifs in this knitted stole transition
from taller to shorter.
Believe it or not, this
complex-looking lace is based on a motif of just 10 stitches by 14 rows (of
which only 7 rows are actual patterning with the other 7 rows being easy 'rest'
rows of plain purling!). The elegance is in the different way the motif is
arranged and repeated in the stole — the knitting is easy yet continues to be
interesting throughout the project.
Select a yarn as soft as thistle
down in colors of Scotch thistle as shown, or in a natural downy white, or
anything that delights your knitterly senses.
The stole is knitted in two
pieces, then joined at the middle by an easy method that does not require
grafting. The resulting seam is nearly invisible to all but the most discerning
