A Honeymoon Stole

Our bride certainly was beautiful. Not to mention, resourceful! I loved the bridal bouquet she made herself with brooches she collected. She even included her new monogram.

After all their hard work on putting together the wedding, she and youngest son, Alex are off on their island honeymoon.

With the One Skein – A Stole! pattern by Katja Jordan and a skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock, I whipped up this versatile scrunchy stole for our bride to tuck into her carry on.  Not only would this make a great stole to grace bare shoulders, it could also be tied across the hips sarong-style for a flirty little bikini cover up.

With the drop stitches on large needles, this stole practically knit itself in no time.

Don’t be afraid of the Noro. It has a reputation for being on the rough side, but once washed and blocked, it softens up quite a bit and its texture improves with every wash.

You just can’t beat those bright, long color repeats. Note to self: time to plan a tropical getaway!

    You should try Knit Picks Chroma. Beautiful colors and so soft it’s a joy to knit. Noro makes beautiful yarn but I can’t stand it next to my skin, no matter what I do to it. http://www.knitpicks.com/cfpromo/chroma_yarn.cfm

      Have you tried washing it a few times, Diane? I have a much loved Noro hat and fingerless mitts that I use for running. They were rough at first, but after a few washes really softened up – and now – a few years and many washings later, they’re super duper soft and cozy!
