Parasol Stole - Close Up

Add to Cart

Parasol is a very versatile pattern that can be knit in DK or lace-weight yarn. The DK version is perfect for cool spring days, while the lace-weight, knit in cotton or silk, is best suited to shading your shoulders when the sun is shining (rather like an actual parasol, in fact!).

Parasol Stole - Back

Both versions are knit in exactly the same way, but the pattern includes instructions for altering the width. So if you’d like to knit it as a narrow scarf, you can! You can also wear it with the border folded down like a shawl-collar.
