Sky­gate Stole

Sky­gate Stole is the per­fect lux­u­ri­ous wrap to wel­come spring. It show­cases an el­e­gant, lacy leaf pat­tern that looks more com­pli­cated than it re­ally is while work­ing with a beau­ti­ful gra­di­ent to make the piece even more breath­tak­ing.

Pat­tern Notes

In or­der to make your shawl match the sam­ple, you will need to use the 2nd ball of yarn, start­ing from the out­er­most color to work your swatch. Then, wind the re­main­ing yarn from the out­side in a ball un­til roughly 2 inches be­fore the color changes; cut the yarn and set aside. Start with the first ball, pulling the yarn from the cen­ter and use it un­til you run out of yarn. Switch to the 2nd ball and work from the out­side color. Use the ball of yarn you wound off to work the edg­ings on both sides of the piece.

Keep 2 stitches at each edge in garter stitch (knit ev­ery row) through­out.
