The Brere Stole is an airy wrap inspired by the geometric patterning of weightless insect wings. The lace motif creates angular lines that are further defined by purl stitches. Just as insect wings mirror each other, so too does this wrap. Each end is worked separately and then joined by grafting the center so that the lace pattern reverses direction.

  • This wrap is worked flat in two pieces from the ends to the center. The two pieces are joined at the center by grafting in the pattern stitch to create an invisible join. The lace motif is repeated three times across each row, and you may wish to place stitch markers between each repeat to help you stay on track.

  • Work with 1 strand each of yarn A and yarn B held together throughout.

  • For yarn A, nearly 6 full balls of yarn were used. You may wish to purchase an extra ball as insurance.
