Oversized Crochet Stole


You'll really find a unique new accessory with this Oversized Crochet Stole pattern. This nifty part about it is that there are slits in the front of the design so that you can put the crochet stole inside of itself so that it totally wraps around you without any added effort. You'll love all the different ways you can wear this wrap, especially if you work it up in a few colors and have an accessory for multiple outfits. Since it's a little bigger and bulkier, this would be a great fall wearable when there's a hint of chill but you don't want to be too warm.

I am making this pattern and it is beautiful. I do have a question - The picture on the model shows the stole about twice the width of the pattern's estimated size of 14 inches and the weave looks much looser than the pattern gauge of 12 stiches and 8 rows to 4 inches. Am I doing something wrong? Is it just due to the stretching when it is worn?

Oh my goodness, this is gorgeous. I really like that it is not only decorative but it appears so nice and warm. It has versatility. The color is okay but I think I'd make it in a different color so it could be used for autumn, winter and spring. I'd like a dark color. What would you choose if you don't care about the pumpkin?

Wow I love the look of this Oversized Crochet Stole! After reading the written pattern, I'm wishing I could see how it is put together? I'm going today to buy the yarn for this one and fingers crossed it will work out as pictured. I am a small framed woman who freezes in the fall and winter. This Oversized Crochet Stole will really help keep me warm. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.

Made with just THREE skeins of Red Heart Super Saver yarn? To make this extra oversized wrap? How can that be?! I like it a lot. The addition of the opening where you can pull one side of the wrap through and cross it over the front is such a nice idea- because we all know how annoying it can be to constantly try to hold your wrap in place when it's windy or when your hands are full! This takes care of that for you. The color is perfect for fall which is just around the corner. Oh, also, the pattern itself is amazingly simple for what it looks like.

Oh my, this oversized stole looks like a chilly Fall day. The color makes me think of pumpkin spice and when I start thinking about pumpkin spice then I starting craving a pumpkin spice latte. It looks so cozy and warm. I think this could also be used on a cold Winter night when you are snuggled up on the sofa reading a book too.

What a beautiful stole! In my working day I spent quite a bit of time outside so I just love the size of it and the bulkiness for extra snugness on a really cold day. Also loving the unusual slits - very stylish and so practical too. Im definitely going to go yarn shopping tomorrow )

This looks so cozy! I think this is the perfect wrap to keep at the office for those extra cold days. Having the slits to "lock in" the ends would make it a great, no fuss layer that wouldnt get in the way of my work! Now, to find the perfect gray yarn to make this in

Where is the pattern?

Turned out nothing like the photo. I'm a seasoned crocheter' and I found this pattern at about a level 4 difficulty with the slit sections. The only video red heart had was over the slit section.

It's exactly like the photo I made mine from the instructions printed inside the yarn label it was very easy to make the slit wasn't a problem at all You just realize you're making a number of rows but instead of going all the way across you stop a third of the way Then you do the same number of rows in the second part of the section then go back and do the same number of rows in the last part of the section So you have a piece of crochet that starts out as a flat normal thing then it splits into sections as if you could braid it and then you start the next row and go across the top of all three sections to turn them into one again Very simple and a great idea Mine came out perfectly except I decided to use up the ballRead More of yarn I was on and it ended up much too long I'm going to unravel a foot or so of it

Maybe I'm really tired, but I can't find the link to get this pattern. I'd really love to make it, but I can't find on red heart.com either. Please fix this.

This is the most obscure pattern ever written. It makes absolutely no sense. There is weird construction and no photos or diagrams of what the author is talking about. It's just a gimmick to sell yarn?
