SUNBURST STOLE and/or SCARF





SUNBURST STOLE and/or SCARF
copyright © 07/06/06 Dot Matthews

Skill: intermediate…this is an easy pattern to do but I rated it intermediate because you need to know how to do a treble crochet.

Stitches: chain (ch); single crochet (sc); double crochet (dc); treble crochet (tr);
Abbreviations used: sk – skip; ea – each; sts – stitches; sp(s) – space(s);

Yarn: any medium weight yarn will work. I used Mainstays, Walmart's brand, now discontinued.

Stole used 10 oz of mainstays (I had 2 8oz skeins)
Scarf used 4 oz of mainstays (about ½ of 1 8oz skein)

Hooks: L/11-8 mm for starting chain and K/10.5-6.50 mm for pattern.

Gauge: I don't know, didn't think it would matter much since they're just rectangles and you can make them as long and wide as you want.

Pattern is worked in multiple of 18 + 8
