Stoles - Wrap Yourself in a Luxe Knit Now

Stoles_to_Knit

A luxe stole (or shawl) is just the thing for wrapping yourself in decadent warmth and instant style!

I also love knitting them year-round, as they allow me to try out new stitch patterns and yarns, give me a project I can carry around (no or minimal shaping, so I focus on the stitchwork instead!), and end up as truly versatile additions to my wardrobe (I wear them as scarves, shoulder warmers, or both!).

Shown above are some best selling options:

  1. #192 Abbot Kinney Shawl/Scarf. Gorgeous leaf lace border is paired with a simpler all-over lace to give you a shawl that is both vintage and modern in feel. Simply beautiful in a hand-painted yarn. On Ravelry.
  2. #181 Sapphire Lace Shawl. A generous triangular lace shawl is a must-have for any wardrobe. This one features simple lace bands alternated throughout. On Ravelry.
  3. #210 Hillside Blooms Shawlette. A uniquely wearable crescent shape is created with a fun-to-knit combination of lace and Garter stitch. A surprising quick knit with fabulous results. On Ravelry.
  4. #229 Adore. A yet-to-be-released gossamer beauty with two lace designs artfully combined. Coming soon! Fave the project on Ravelry and be sure to join my email list to be notified of this release.
  5. #202 Truffles Stole. A unique threaded-cable design runs the length of this stole in two wide panels. A simpler braided cable runs the center line and creates the finished edges. A real treat for cable lovers, especially in a yummy cashmere blend, as shown. On Ravelry.
  6. #196 Garden Stroll Stole. A pretty combination of cables and lace makes this a uniquely beautiful piece to knit and wear. Knits up quickly on size 8 needles. On Ravelry.

The Zelda Blouse
by White Lies Designs

This adorable top is inspired by one of our favorite fashion eras, the fabulous 1940's.

During WWII, the sweater girl was the woman of the day and on every soldier's mind as he spent lonely months away from home. A curvy gal like Zelda would surely remind him what he was fighting for.

Zelda is knit circularly from the bottom up and is shaped with interior darts. For advanced intermediate and experienced knitters.

Finished bust sizes: 34(38,42,46,50)" . . . >

Evelyn
by Wood House Knits

Cables add wonderful structural details to garments, like the cable on the back that starts out as a braid then moves into single rope like cables giving structure to the back pleat. The yoke of this cardigan is fitted while the back pleat adds ample room to body making it like a swing jacket. This also makes it flattering and very comfortable to wear. It will surely be a versatile addition to your wardrobe. . . . >

FREE Pattern Pick: Rose Cabled Circular Scarf by SweaterBabe.com

Rose Cabled Circular Scarf

FREE Pattern Pick:
Rose Cabled Circular Scarf
by SweaterBabe.com
(free ONLY until 12/31/15. On Ravelry, use "Buy it Now" to add  to cart and see $0 SALE price.)

Simple, but with a few quirks. That's how I like my days to flow and how I like to describe this lovely cabled circular scarf. It's knit in the round with a cable design that features unique cable twists that show the purl side of the fabric. The cables are otherwise just simple braids and are staggered within a wide rib design. It is these little quirks that make this pattern interesting and different! A great pattern with enough going on to hold your interest and result in a simply elegant accessory. Easy to wear and easy to give as a gift knit for any deserving male or female in your life. . . . >
