Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Summer 2005:

Soft, warm buffalo yarn in its natural color, a deep, rich brown, knits up in a neck warmer and wristlets that rival the softest merino for comfort. The pieces are worked in the round in an unfussy, reversible lace pattern and finished off with a simple crochet edging. When you make these warmers as gifts - or for yourself - don’t forget to give a nod to Annie Oakley, the original Buffalo Girl.

Finished Size: 15 (17)“ (38 43 cm) neck circumference with fabric relaxed; will stretch to fit over a 19½ (24)” (49.5 61 cm) head.

Yarn: American Buffalo Fingering (100% American buffalo; 241 yd 220 m/50 g): natural, 1 skein for neck warmer.

  • Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Markers (m), size D/3 (3.25 mm) crochet hook; tapestry needle; small amount of contrasting waste yarn.
