Wrap Yourself in Luxury
What do you call this vintage knitting pattern? A stole, a wrap or a shawl? It could even be used as a scarf. This pretty stole is straight from the 1950’s.
The stole is 20″ x 60″ without Tassels. Sixteen ounces of American Thread Company “Dawn” Knitting Worsted in Canary or color of your choice is used. With one pair of No. 10½ Knitting Needles or any size needle which will result in the stitch gauge. Which is:
4 sts = 1″ (unblocked)
2 sts = 1″ (blocked)
American Thread Company Dawn Knitting Worsted is a 4 ply 100% Wool. The skeins came in 3½ to 4 ounces with 252 yards each.

Star Book No. 167
“Begin to Knit” is the title of the American Thread Co. Star Book No. 167 that this vintage knitting pattern comes from. With this in mind, it should be an easy pattern, even for a beginner.
Part of the booklet is abbreviations you’ll need to knit the stole.
