Bi-directional Lace Strips Stole

HeartStrings knitting pattern #H73

This gem of a stole is made in jewel-tone colors of narrow lace strips that are joined as the panels are knitted, thus eliminating the need for any sewing later on. There are three sets of strips, each in a different color. The undulating edges around the stole and between the strips add movement and interest to this eye-catching stole.

An unusual feature is that the panels are worked in the opposite direction of the panel to which they are joined, thus creating vertical symmetry of the tear-drop pendant motifs across the six adjoining panels.

Another feature of the stole is a lengthwise separation to form two narrower sections of three strips each that give variety to the ways this stole can be worn. We especially like to wear this style with the wider section laying on one shoulder and the ‘tails’ simply flung over the other shoulder.

The Bi-directional Lace Strips Stole pattern is the newest addition to the HeartStrings skill-building series It's an Upside-Down World: directional stitches in lace.

Lace Strips Stole on the runway of the Yarn Group TNNA 2010 Summer Fashion Show

I was pleased that the HeartStrings Bi-Directional Lace Strips Stole I designed for Himalaya Yarn was also requested by the TNNA Yarn Group for the Philadelphia Fashion Show a few months later.

This video clip is excerpted from "The Yarn Group Shines at the Philadelphia Fashion Show 2010". The entire video taped by Sherri Mulne is available on YouTube.
