A pattern for a Priest's stole?

does anyone have any ideas for making a priest’s stole? this would be a gift for a friend who is celebrating 25 years of ordination.
i’d like to make something that is lightweight (linen yarn?), subtle, and tasteful. the garment has to lay flat – and may need to have a fabric backing – your ideas about how to do this are welcome!

(i came across one pattern online but it was “dull” – not much interest in it.)

thanks for your ideas

I don’t, but I thought you meant the verb “stole” when I read the title. :rofl:

oops! thanks for the laugh, cawthraven! – i fixed the title…
