Crochet: This stole is made one panel at a time by color. Once one panel is complete, you will attach the next color of yarn to the starting row and chain the length of the next panel. Once you stitch back towards the first panel, you will work slip stitches into it to seam the two together as you work. The finished effect is a color blocked stole without seaming, so the fabric is smooth like intarsia but allows you to focus on one stitch panel at a time. Always skip stitches behind Front Post (FP) stitches as they count as a stitch.
Knit: This stole is worked flat from the bottom up in one piece using intarsia. When changing to a new color, bring the old color up and around the new color to prevent any holes from forming in the piece. Use a separate ball of yarn for each section. The pattern instructions indicate when to change colors.
Stitch patterns are both written and charted. For additional convenience, we have included a Stitch Pattern Layout to serve as a visual guide. It indicates where each chart is positioned as well as color changes.
Color-blocked fringe is applied to each end during finishing.
