The Bosque Wrap is an elegant bias wrap, with playful stripes and a surprisingly easy leafy lace. “Bosque” is the Portuguese word for woods.
The pattern requires two yarns of different weights for the delicate lace effect, the main color in fingering weight and the contrasting color in lace weight.Yarn
