Introducing Scheherazade, the design for Mystery Stole 2006. Named after the legendary Sultana who is the storyteller in 1001 Arabian Nights, the Scheherazade stole will add drama and luxury to the tale of your life. This charted design is a very easy way to learn the basic stitches used in lace knitting as well as teaching yourself to "read" your knitting. Worked from the center out to each end, it is finished off with a knitted on border at each end. Step by step directions along with large, easy to read charts will make it easy to knit your own legend. Design uses 4 ounces of Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight. (1260 yards) Shown in Ruby.
Also included in the pattern is a never before seen design for Storyteller Socks! Everyday life has a way of being less than glamorous, but these socks, inspired by the motifs from the Scheherazade stole, are a great way to add a bit more luxury to your day.
A large lace motif graces each side of the sock, while a small lace trellis accents the center front and back of the sock. Complete step by step directions and charted lace patterns make it easy to knit a lovely pair of socks inspired by the stole.

The total pattern package is 31 pages long and includes the complete patterns for the Scheherazade stole and the Storyteller Socks. The pattern is in a pdf format and will be sent to you for download as soon as payment is made.

To Glenna and anyone else who is looking for another way to purchase the pattern:

Please leave your email address in the comments (write it as: yourname AT whatever DOT com.) I'll replace the words with the correct symbols and this is more trouble than most spammers want to deal with. I'll also delete your comment once I answer you just to help cut back on spam.

Just purchased your pdf for the new stole. However, the pdf has a lot of blank pages. I only get pictures and no instructions.......??????

Can you please email the correct pdf to questrix at gmail dot com.

Purchase was under David Magill and paid through paypal via Spinnermedia account.

I heard about this shawl through a friend who sent me the link. It is lovely. I am just sorry the cost of trying to get the pattern here in Australia is prohibitive - just for once I might actually follow a pattern instead of designing my own!
Congratulations on what must have been hours and hours of work

Absolutely stunning! I knit stoles and shawls as a prayer ministry for women who are going through cancer treatment, immune disorders and other chronic illnesses, so I am always looking out for something different. I like them to be pretty to make women feel loved, beautiful and special. This pattern certainly fits the bill and I can't wait until my Christmas knitting is done to start it! Your photography is awesome too! Thanks for the great design.

Your shawl is incedible - are you planning a series to ge with the Arabian Nights theme as I would want to chose colors that blend for the series.

I just ordered your stole and bing there it was. Wow, I'm all for immediate gratification and that is usually not possible ordering on the internet. A nice lady who did this as a mystery stole told me where to get it. Thanks so much, it looks like you have amazingly complete directions. It is a very beautiful stole, now I must pick out amazingly beautiful yarn. Mary

Darn, Blogger destroyed my nice long comment. My usual Blogger experience. Trying again.

1. I would like to purchase your Leda's Dream and Scheherazade patterns. Clicking the Buy Now button takes me to PayPal's home page, not to a purchase link. As I don't know your email address for PayPal, would you kindly email me at typonaut AT gmail DOT com?

Thanks in advance from a new admirer of your beautiful work.

2. I came here from Yarn Harlot, where I learned about MS 3 just hours too late to sign up. Wah.

I just ordered Sheherazade and goofed. When I got the receipt I didn't see the download button. I then ordered a couple of your mom's patterns and saw the button. When I tried to go back and order Sheherazade, it keeps asking me for a password. I've used all my usual passwords and it still won't let me in. What do I do? I'm sorry for the trouble - I love being to download right away, now that I know to do it.

Hi, Melanie--

Like others here, my copy, which I purchased several years ago, will not show pictures in Adobe Reader 9. Is there a way for me to get a copy in the Adobe 9 format? (I'll bet you are getting tired of this issue!). Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ada, If you will leave your email address (whatever AT whatever DOT com), I can reply to your question about Adobe Reader problems. The other commenter who couldn't get pictures just needed to update their version of Adobe Reader. You are the first person I've found who hasn't had pictures on the newest version. Email me and I can help you sort this out.
