Alpaca silk wrapped once, twice, or even three times around your neck! It's the ultimate in scarf luxury.
This boho lace knit scarf can be worn as an eternity scarf or a regular scarf with the clever placement of clear snaps.
The lace design creates delicate, open scalloped columns along the length of the scarf. The lace pattern is nicely repetitive and easy to learn. The alpaca silk feels heavenly to work with, gliding along so smoothly and creating a scarf with amazing softness and drape.
Give the scarf a half twist, snap the ends together, and wear it as an eternity scarf. There's enough length to wrap it over your shoulder like a shawl, or around your neck two or three times for this season's key look.
Unsnap the ends and wear this scarf looped around your neck for a more classic look.
The silky fringe adds to the boho, carefree look.

This pattern was calling to me, I just had to make it. I knitted it in a lovely plum alpaca with a hat and gloves to match. The lace pattern is easy to memorize and looks lovely when blocked. The only thing I would add to the pattern is a gauge in stockinet stitch.

Just as everyone described a "nice" easy to remember pattern

The pattern is well written & very clear. I love the step-by-step directions. I'm not finished with it yet due to some recent eye surgery, but I love the way it's coming out. Can't wait to wear it!!

I haven't knit the pattern yet, but I have studied the pattern and I am now searching for the perfect yarn. Pattern is well written and easy to understand.

I am enjoying this pattern a lot, and the scallop design is gorgeous.

This is a very easy pattern, I did add some more detail that added a few inches. Knitting it up in red alpaca.

I have other projects to knit but something about this scarf wanted me to stick with it.
It was wonderful.

Easy, relaxing pattern. Fashionable and wearable for years.

I knitted this not only with this color but an olive green. Each girlfriend got one for Christmas. This year I'm knitting the yellow, beige, brown and blue.

Cast on the day after I got the pattern. I gave it four stars because nothing could ever beat your little vest pattern that I have made twice now. Besides, I have to give myself room to go up on the next pattern I get from you. LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact that you allowed a way to let it be both cowl and scarf. Your directions RULE!
