Yosemite

This stole is inspired by the beauty of America's Southwest, and is the tenth in my series of Pueblo stoles.
It's a little wider than the others, and incorporates an occaisional stranded row for accent.
Like the others, it is constructed of wide ribs knit on the bias to give it its beautiful drape.

The fringe is easy - it's knit in, and because of the fringe, there are hardly any loose ends to weave in later.
I used a fringe twister to finish off my fringe, but it's not necessary ... you can simply add little knots at the ends to give your fringe a little weight.

This wrap is versatile. Wear it around the neck like a scarf, draped over the shoulders like a shawl, or anything in between.

Construction: Work stole in two sections and graft. Change colors or cut yarn every two rows, using loose ends to make up the fringe.
