From Arctic Lace:
"I adapted the chevron designs in this scarf from carvings on Yup’ik and Inupiat ivory tools and the basket pictured. My favorite pieces are the ornately carved needle cases that Inupiat women kept in their sewing kits. The scarf has three stitch patterns: a simple eyelet edging, a small chevron border on both ends, and a large chevron design that makes up the body of the scarf. Because the chevron design looks best going a single direction, I made this scarf in two pieces, so the design would face the center from both ends."
