Pattern Description:

Whether dressing up your jeans jacket or adding flair to dressier
attire, Volan offers endless possibilities for fashionably warding
off the chill of cool evenings or air conditioning. This versatile
piece is something between a scarf, shawl and wrap with a

Volan has double shaped ruffles on both edges and a two colored
garter stitch body. Innovative construction techniques eliminate
the need for short rows and picking up stitches..
