How to Knit a Longways Multiyarn Stole
This multiyarn stole lets a collection of beautiful yarns do the work for you — the knitting could hardly be simpler, yet the resulting multiyarn stole is stunning. (A stole is like a giant scarf that you use to wrap around your arms and shoulders.)
Here are this project’s materials and vital statistics:
Yarn: You need the following three types of yarn:
Yarn A: Divé Mohair Kiss Ombre (73% mohair, 22% wool, 5% polyamide); 98 yards (90 meters) per 50 grams; 3 skeins; color: 40377
Yarn B: Divé Fiamma (100% wool); 55 yards (50 meters) per 50 grams; 2 skeins; color: 40377
Yarn C: Divé Luxus (91% nylon, 9% polyester); 51 yards (47 meters) per 50 grams; 2 skeins; color: 40377
Needles: US 15 (10 mm) circular needle, 24-inch (60-centimeter) length or longer, or the size needed to match gauge (if you tend to cast on tightly, use an even bigger needle to cast on and bind off)
Other materials: Large crochet hook; yarn needle to weave in ends
Size: 16 inches wide by 65 inches long (40 by 165 centimeters), without fringe
Gauge: 8 stitches and 12 rows per 4 inches (10 centimeters) in garter stitch
Knit your longways multiyarn stole:
With yarn B (the thick and thin wool), cast on 130 sts loosely.
Knit 1 row. Cut yarn B.
Follow this stitch pattern:
Rows 1 and 2: Join yarn A (the mohair) and knit 2 rows. Don’t cut yarn A.
Rows 3 and 4: Join yarn C (the ribbon) and knit 2 rows. Cut yarn C.
Rows 5 and 6: Knit 2 rows with yarn A. Don’t cut yarn A.
Rows 7 and 8: Join yarn B and knit 2 rows. Cut yarn B.
Repeat these 8 rows until your stole measures approximately 16 inches (40 centimeters), ending with Row 7.
Bind off loosely with yarn B.
Weave in any loose ends.
Cut 18 20-inch (50-centimeter) pieces each from yarn B and yarn C.
Cut 36 20-inch (50-centimeter) pieces from yarn A.
Divide the pieces of fringe into 18 groups with 2 strands of A, 1 strand of B, and 1 strand of C in each group.
Stick your crochet hook through the edge of the work from the wrong side to the right side.
Position your fringe every 2 inches (5 centimeters) along each short side of the stole.
Grab the center of the length of fringe with the hook, and then pull through a loop of yarn about 1 inch (2.5 centimeters) long.
Using your fingers or the crochet hook, pull the tails of the fringe through the loop and give them a gentle tug to secure them.
Repeat Steps 9 through 11 for all 18 pieces of fringe.
If you like, use scissors to give the ends of your fringe a trim.
