This stole is based on a free Eunny Jang pattern available HERE.
I've modified this pattern considerably. To begin with, there's an error in the border chart, rows 9, 11, 13, and 15.
My stole is worked in garter stitch, so it is completely reversible.
The two center panels go in opposite directions, but there is no seam joining them.
I eliminated the picked-up inner border, but without compromising the eyelet effect. Nothing is "picked-up," which further makes the garment reversible.
I added some extra stitches/open-work to the border, just to get fancy.
The gold version is worked with a lace-weight silk/wool blend. The purple version is worked with Bendigo mohair/wool, a heavier weight yarn and I'm not sure what the ply is. I'm completely pleased with both versions.
The construction method I used to modify this stole is the same as this shawl/scarf -- it can be either -- that I designed. This garment is completely flexible as to size, not by changing needle size, but by adding more rows/diamonds to the center and continuing to expand the edges, per instructions. The borders are also completely flexible as to size.
