Make a statement in the simplest of ways with bold colours, squishy garter stitch, and the subtlest hint of lace. Litríkur, a bias rectangular stole, is just the ticket for relaxed knitting, but its decadent feel and versatile shape will leave you breathless with delight all year long.
This stole is worked in one piece on the bias, meaning that it begins in one corner, gradually increasing to the desired width, then working evenly until shawl reaches the desired length on the longest side, before decreasing into the opposite corner. It’s the perfect beginner lace project, while still remaining engaging and fun from cast-on to bind-off.
