Get yourself a new challenge and check out for the knitting pattern for this amazing stole!
I named this beautiful stole Fanyamar, the “home of the clouds” in Quenya, the language of the old Elves in J.R.R. Tolkiens world of Middle-Earth because it is delicate and feathery like a breath of air and soft as a cloud.
It is called a “Ponchola” because it can be turned into a poncho by using a cord or narrow ribbon.
Fanyamar is created for laceweight yarns because this best matches the pattern’s lofty character, although you can work the stole with thicker yarns, e.g. in fingering weight, too. The yarn should not be thicker than 4ply.
approx. 150 grams[ 5.3 oz] of laceweight yarn (approx. 750 meters [820 yds], e.g. Lace Seta / Lace Seta degradé by Lana Grossa, Laceball by Schoppel
circular or single point knitting needle size 4mm [US6], I recommend an interchangeable system
stitch markers if neccessary
sewing needle for weaving-in ends
if neccessary a crochet hook and beads for the drawstring or a piece of narrow ribbon to turn the stole into a poncho
The stole is started at one egde with a cast on of 3 stitches. Its shape is achieved by increasing and decreasing regularly. The pattern contains the stitch numbers for 2 different sizes, one smaller size and one bigger size. The listed yardage refers to the smaller size.
Finished size after blocking (smaller version): approx. 60 x 160 cm [23.6 x 63 in]

With the "Swing" series, you can combine and make the most diverse models - dresses, hats and bags - for your children and grandchildren. So every Barbie, Steffi, Petra, Susi, Sabine ... gets her very own
personal outfit in her favorite color. Take a look at my photos and let
yourself be caught by the desire for self-made doll clothes. It does not
always have to be the neon colored plastic dress with velcro closure
from the factory - just make yourself the most beautiful clothes, hats
and bags! Only 2 grams for a sun hat. So, enough remains! And, as an
addition, there is still the hand-sewing instructions for an underskirt,

I have enjoyed this project very much. And you will as well. Imagine the bright eyes of doll mothers when they are given such a lovely
