Boiseau is a luxurious wrap worked in DK weight yarn on large needles. Subtle textures and easy lace give Boiseau just the right amount of detail, without being overwhelming. Broad panels of herringbone lace are set off by gently branching columns of lace rib and garter stitch. Drape Boiseau across your shoulders and show off the open lace, or wrap it around your neck as a sumptuous scarf to highlight the textures of the stitch patterns.
