I'm pretty sure the subdeacon did not wear a stole. Quoting the Catholic Encyclopedia article on the stole:

The stole is worn only by deacons, priests, and bishops. For deacons and priests it is the specific mark of office, being the badge of the diaconal and priestly orders. The wrongful use of the stole by subdeacons, therefore, would imply the usurpation of a higher order, and would constitute an irregularity.[1].
