Jared Flood’s Autumn LeavesSeptember 5, 2012
Wow – it’s been a while since I’ve posted around here but hey – something called “Summer” happened. There was a lot of yard work to do and feeding my summer addiction. But I was knitting. I’ve been working on two big, long projects and finally got one of them finished – the Autumn Leaves Stole by Jared Flood.
This stole is knit in two halves and then grafted together, using kitchener stitch. I had the first half finished the first part of the year and then, after it went on a stitch holder, I got distracted and picked up some other things to knit. But discipline set in and I determined to finish the second half. The second half just flew off the needles. Such fun to knit!
Jared’s pattern is, as usual, so well written and the chart is easy to read. The pattern is very easy and once you get the hang of the stitch symbols, a very fast knit. This stole can be worn as a scarf, also. I’ve used Madelinetosh Vintage, which is a yummy yarn, so warm and soft.
