I'm kicking off 2013 a bit early with a brand-new pattern release, the Orbspinner Stole.
Inspired by the intricate lacy spider webs created by the orbspinner spiders, this laceweight rectangular stole features Estonian lace motifs, with interlocking diamond patterns, edged with leaf-patterned, scalloped-edge borders. The stole is knit beginning with one border through the body, then the second border is knit and the two pieces grafted together.
The stole is 21” x 70” after blocking, but can easily altered for size by adding or subtracting repeats. The sample used approximately 1200 yards of laceweight yarn (875/yards per 4 oz skein). I've also got yarn packs of the Arianrhod Lace base yarn available in the shop as well - the original sample is knit in the Winterfell colorway, which is a soft, herby-green.
A BIG thank-you to my test/sample knitter!!
Happy New Year!
