Rose Stole KAL

As many of you know I work in a yarn shop part time.  This week we are starting two new KAL's   I will be the moderator of the Rose Stole by Susanna IC from the Spring 2011 Interweave Knits Magazine on Thursdays.  We are doing a KAL on Saturdays of the Pinkerton Shawl by Susan Dittrich also from the Spring Interweave.

I had a skein of Jaggerspun Heather in my stash and decided to use it for the stole.  Although the pattern does not call for beads I wanted to add some in the rose bud lace border.  This project is started using a provisional cast on knitted from the center back so you will have a mirror image of the border.

Tomorrow we will begin with the provisional cast on.  The method I will be showing is one Jean showed me several years ago where using waste yarn you crochet on to your knitting needle and then you knit on to those stitches with your working yarn. 

If you want to knit a long you will need approximately 850 yards of lace weight yarn and a size 7 needle.  And of course a copy of Interweave Knits Spring 2011.
