Valley Yarns WEBS DIR02 Shawl Collar Stole by Doris Chan
Welcome to the the second pattern in our Designer in Residence series! With a bit of clever shaping, the Shawl Collar Stole by Doris Chan is a meltingly soft stole that drapes beautifully and securely around the shoulders. The wide top band in gentle ribbing turns over to form a snuggly collar. The back is curved to create some roominess through the arms and allow the fronts to sit properly in front. The stole is just wide enough for comfortable coverage, but not so wide that you’re constantly sitting on the back. And the fronts have enough wrap-around length without getting in your way. Valley Superwash Bulky makes the crocheting quick and smooth, while the relaxed gauge and open lacy stitch pattern keep this stole surprisingly lightweight yet cozy without being stuffy.
