This is the finished Vlinder stole. Unfortunately, it does not look as nice as in the book. I am especially dissatisfied with the edge and the lack of form. Maybe, once I wear it, I will change my opinion.

Hier ist die fertige Vlinder Stola. Leider bin ich immer noch eher unzufrieden mit dem Stück, vor allem der Rand und die mangelnde Form stören mich. Vielleicht ändert sich das ja, sobald ich das Stück trage.

Pattern/Anleitung: Nancy Marchant, Knitting Brioche.
Needle size/Nadelstärke: 5 mm
Yarn/Wolle: Misti Alpaca Lace Yarn
stole weighs: approx. 80 g

I like the stole.

I also liked reading about Debbie New and your trip to London. I met Debbie a few years ago in Mull Scotland and thought she was great. I love her knitting.

It looks so beautiful, I'm sorry you are dissatisfied and I really hope you are beginning to enjoy wearing it, I love the open-ness of the stitch, it looks so good in that yarn.
