Buffalo Girl: Neck Warmer
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.
