When I began knitting lace I found a pattern from MMario with a fascinating construction – Quinn’s Star Stole.
The idea for a stole created using a similar process percolated in my head for a long time, until I had enough skills to come up with PPaola.
This stole can be done with lace weight yarn held double or a single strand of fingering weight yarn. If you choose to use sock (fingering) weight yarn, you’ll need approx. 700m (765.5yd).
PPaola is started in the round and then worked back and forth for the arms. You can choose to use nupps or beads as accents.
