This stole symbolizes the structure of a happy marriage. The knitted columns ebb and flow into each other just as one half of a married couple shoulders the majority of the responsibilities and provides unconditional love during times of hardship. Later, such support is reciprocated by the other half of the married couple.
Knit the stole as a gift for a bride, as an anniversary present or as homage to your own happy marriage. Though the stole is not reversible, each side is unique and worthy of being shown off.
May the stole bring you or your loved one many years of marriage bliss.
