Growing up Sunday was the day all the women of my church would dress up. From shawls to hats to dresses, it was a concert of modesty. This shawl is an ode to those women, each of them unique in their own way, each holding a place in my heart.
Sunday’s were also about my Nana and I. The love and kindness she put in my heart is still there. And while I was making this shawl I couldn’t help but think of her. That’s why when I finished it…I gave it right to her.
So, I’m giving it to you all as well. The Sunday Stole is my gift to y’all for being just about as special to me as anyone can be.
As for the shawl…here’s a bit of info:
Starting at one end a large number of stitches are cast on and worked up to create the base of the stole. The edging is picked up and worked in a join as you go fashion, anchoring the scarf with a fun pop of lace.
Get creative – this is YOUR shawl! Use 1 color, or 2, or as many as you want. Make it with bright colors, or more relaxed. This is the perfect opportunity to play!
