ALWAYS CAST ON LOOSELY FOR STOLES.
CHECK YOUR GAUGE — It is very important to obtain the correct gauge given in instructions. To check your gauge, measure off 2 inches in the center of your knitting and mark with pins. Count the stitches or rows between pins. If you have less stitches or rows than required for 2 inches, your knitting is too loose; try a smaller size needle. If you have more stitches or rows than required for 2 inches, your knitting is too tight; try a larger size needle.
BLOCKING OR STEAMING — Pin stole to board wrong side up. Steam with moderately hot iron over a wet cloth, taking care not to let weight of iron rest upon any one spot. Leave pinned until thoroughly dry.
FRINGE — Wind yarn around cardboard; cut at one end, see Figure 1. Fold in half and knot in number of strands indicated in individual instruction, see Figure 2. Trim fringe evenly.
