Pattern description from Arctic Lace: “This long, thin boa works equally well as a winter neck warmer or a summer scarf. A second version, knitted in hemp and shown on page 89, is an example of how you can substitute less expensive yarns and still end up with beautiful results. The pattern shows up nicely in both yarns, yet the texture is completely different.”
