If this pattern looks familiar, you’re not imagining things! This pattern was first published in the June 2017 issue of I Like Knitting. Now that the rights have reverted back to me, I’ve updated the pattern and added it to the Hands Occupied Pattern Shop. Before you could only get this bad boy in the magazine, and now you can get it all by itself! In addition to being newly updated and added to the pattern shop, kits of this pattern will be available this weekend at Vogue Knitting Live New York. Kits featuring this pattern & yarn from Mrs. Crosby will be available in the Knitted Purl booth.
For the indie release, I knitted an updated sample of the Ruby Stole in a semi-solid color of the same yarn this pattern was first designed with, Mrs. Crosby Satchel. The semi-solid is a lovely purple called Wild Huckleberry that really shows off all of the texture throughout this design. If you’re curious what the dramatic red and black colorway is called, it’s Scarlet Ibis.
