Ok, here’s the cleaned up and completed lacy stole.
The pattern is the Long Lace Stole pattern. And after many frogged WIPs, I finally found a pattern for this Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn in Winery. Sometimes, you don’t need a complicated pattern; a simple pattern will do.
I don’t do fringes much, and I wasn’t planning on adding any once done. In my head, they use up a lot of yarn (and they do), and I normally don’t buy more than three skeins of the same colour, unless I have a particular project in mind. But after I finished crocheting this on the plane one hour before we landed, it looked like it did need the fringes at the ends.
I would normally tie that second knot right up by the border/edge, securing it in place. This time, I tied the knot about an inch below the edge.
After I finished, there was still a good length of the fringe left. Not wanting to waste so much yarn when trimming it, I tied another row of knots one inch below the first set, taking two strands from the left and two strands from the right, resulting in a diamond pattern.
I was liking how it looked, so I continued on.
Here’s how it looks like, when worn (as modeled by Charisse).
I didn’t block it; maybe I will, at a later date. Right now, it’s done just in time for this cold weather blowing in!
