I adore the look of lace shawls that other knitters create, but not very keen of knitting them myself simply because of the endless repetition of hundreds of rows. However, I desperately needed one for my friends’ Polish-Indian wedding. And I needed it fast :) In order to escape the repeated rows I have decided to knit a stole from top to bottom with a subtle lace edging. Therefore, Angarika stole came to life... The charted design of this stole is very easy to follow, and can be knitted up with nearly any lace weight yarn and appropriate needle size.
Finished measurements: 23” (57½cm) wide and 68” (170cm) long - after blocking.
Gauge: 5 sts and 10 rows per 1” (2½cm) with US 2½ - 3 mm needles in Stockinette stitch after blocking. In lace knitting it is not important to get the exact gauge, but rather to get the look you like with your yarn
