Pattern description from Handknit Holidays: “Wrap yourself up like a present with these glorious little scarves, crafted to look like curled holiday ribbon. Wear them coiled around your neck for a ruff look, toss one end over a shoulder for a boa effect. Better yet, tie them around a wrapped present for an exquisite package wrapping that doubles as a spontaneous gift.”

Finished Measurements: Version 1: 38 inches long x 4 inches wide, Version 2: 22 inches long x 4 inches wide

Notions: Yarn needle, 2 needle stoppers

Two versions shown in the book:
Version 1: uses 4 skeins of Classic Elite Lush and 4 skeins of Rowan Lurex Shimmer.
Version 2: uses 3 skeins of Rowan Kid Silk Haze.

Note: “When it becomes hard to work on one needle alone due to the large number of stitches, add the second needle, place stoppers on ends and work back and forth.”
