Construction

This stole is worked in two halves and then grafted together in the middle. The edging is knit first and then stitches are picked up along the top of the edging to work the center of the stole. Once the two pieces are grafted together stitches are then picked up down each vertical edge and a picot bind-off is worked to finish.
