Lily of the Valley Stole

The Lily of the Valley Stole is a pretty and feminine wrap, featuring traditional Estonian lace knitting patterns. Little bobbles called "nupps" create the illusion of sweet sprays of lily of the valley.

The stocking stitch stole is worked by knitting a lace edging from which stitches are picked up to knit the main rectangular body. Then it is finished by knitting another lace edging and the stitches are cast off in the Estonian style. NOTE: Fiddlesticks Knitting patterns are charted. Recommended for Intermediate knitters.
