I worked this version in a beautifully soft baby alpaca and I love the way it came out. Later I worked another version in a merino/cashmere yarn, Willow & Lark Nest, and it was lovely in that too. You can see that project here.
The stole features a reversible stitch pattern with two completely different looks. One side has echoes of a traditional woven fabric while the other has a modern cubist feel.
