This elegant rectangular stole in three sizes (scarf/petite stole/tall stole) has a fluid drape that recalls rippling water with each movement. The lace panel at the center has an intricate appearance, but is simple to work and is echoed at the sides by a beautiful shaped edging—or choose a simple garter edging for a more tailored finish. All in all, a piece with options, to slide over the shoulders of a summer dress or accent a beautiful suit fabric in fall and winter.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
