This stole features several raised stitch patterns that form a beautiful “flower bell” edging. The stole starts with the edging; the body stitches are picked up off that and worked to the middle. The stitches are put on waste yarn and the second half is worked. Finally, the two pieces are grafted together. The pattern includes instructions for two stole sizes and a scarf.
