Inspired by the Heavenly Cowl, this lacy rectangular stole borrows the Heavenly stitch pattern which is placed at each end. Moving to the centre, the pattern changes into small diamonds, meeting in the middle with a beautiful panel of large lace diamonds. The stole is worked flat from two ends and grafted together closer to one end.
