----------------------------------------------------------

CROCHET TIP:

STOLE - SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE PIECE:
Work back and forth from one corner and up to opposite corner - see chart.

STOLE:
See illustrations A.1 to A.4. See chart on how to crochet the piece. Begin in first corner as follows:

FIRST CORNER:
ROW 1: Work 1 chain stitch (= C on A.1) on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with Brushed Alpaca Silk. Work 1 love knot as follows: * Pull stitch on hook long - approx. 1½ cm, make 1 yarn over, pull yarn over through long stitch, insert hook through loop (see A.2 - loop = D on A.2) made from the long stitch - read CROCHET TIP, make 1 yarn over, pull yarn over through the loop (= 2 stitches on hook), make 1 yarn over, pull yarn over through the 2 stitches on hook *, work from *-* 3 more times (= 4 love knots) and form them into 1 square with 1 single crochet in 1st chain stitch worked (= C).
ROW 2: Turn piece, work 3 love knots, 1 single crochet in the 3rd love knot from 1st row, work 3 love knots and 1 single crochet in the 2nd love knot from 1st row (= 2 squares on row).
ROW 3: Turn piece, work 1 love knot and fasten with 1 single crochet in the 2nd love knot from previous row (i.e. In the last square worked) - you have now turned (= black squares in chart) and are ready to continue on this row: Work 3 love knots, 1 single crochet at the top of last square from previous row, 2 love knots, 1 single crochet in top of next square, 3 love knots, 1 single crochet in 1st love knot in first square from previous row (= 3 squares on row). REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROW 4: Turn piece, work 1 love knot and fasten with 1 single crochet in the 2nd love knot in last square from previous row - you have now turned and are ready to continue on this row: Work 3 love knots, 1 single crochet at the top of last square from previous row, 2 love knots, 1 single crochet at the top of next square, 2 love knots, 1 single crochet in top of next square, 3 love knots, 1 single crochet in 1st love knot in first square from previous row (= 4 squares on row).
Continue like this upwards, turn on every row as explained in 3rd row and continue to work so that there is one more square on every row. Work 3 love knots in each side and 2 love knots on the rest of row (each square should have 4 love knots in total).
Work like this until stole measures approx. 45 cm (see star in diagram on how to measure). - but without working the last love knot (the one you turn with), i.e. finish at E to continue diagonally. Desired number of square have been worked in width.

MIDDLE:
Then continue as shown in A.3, begin from E (with love knots and turn as shown in diagram), number of squares is the same but 1 and 1 square goes diagonally towards one side. Continue like this upwards until stole measures approx. 180 cm along the longest side.

LAST CORNER:
Then work as shown in A.4 (with love knots and turn as shown in diagram), there is now 1 square less on every row. Continue upwards until there is only 1 square on row, fasten off. Stole measures approx. 45 x 180 cm/17 3/4 x 70 3/4.
