  • How to make a shawl. Traditional Stole - Step 1
    Step 1

    Construction
    The bottom lace of the first tail is worked, then stitches are picked up along the straight edge. The tail and side laces are worked together and left on a thread. The second tail is worked the same way, then the centre and side laces are worked onto these stitches directly. The two pieces are then grafted together.
