It's time to talk about Sierra - the lace stole that I included in Sock-Yarn Shawls II.
Starlit, this one is worked up with the Twisted Fiber Art Muse yarn (660 yard ball). My obsession with gradient yarn is deep. :)
Japanese stitch dictionaries. I had been wanting to use it for some time. It's so beautiful, I decided that it didn't need complicated shaping to go with it. A nice, rectangular stole is the perfect way to show off the lace!
My dear friend, Cathy, knit up this sample from my book. She has lots of family in California & Nevada, and with the peaks and valleys in the stitch pattern, Sierra seemed like a great name for this one!
The book includes instructions on how you can adjust the size of the stole if you want. So if you are looking for a smaller scarf or a huge wrap, you definitely can make it your own.
Stay tuned for Thursday, when I chat about Floe, a shawl that went from a rejected magazine submission to one of my favorites in the book.
