Description from the Patternfish pattern page:

“Named after the Carmanah Valley in British Columbia, Canada, this pattern echoes the winding paths and lush greenery of the old growth forest that inspired it,” says Matthews. “You’ll find the scarf is large enough to wear in a variety of ways, and lush enough to keep you cozy during a long hike through the woods.” She is not prolific (enough), but when she does release a design, it’s immaculately thought out and beautifully, simply written. This is a wise and gorgeous use of a variegate, and you can work from either the large chart or the written directions in large clear type.

Pattern notes:
This pattern has the lace pattern charted in addition to written directions.

The original required two 100g hanks of Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn.

Notions required:
Tapestry needle for darning loose ends; rust-proof pins, blocking wires and blocking board for blocking to finished size.
