Just finished the Bola scarf, so named by Mark, who described it “like one of those Gaucho things for catching horses”.

So, I did what anyone does these days and googled  “gaucho device catching horses with ball at each end” , thereby learning all there is to know about the boleadores.




Now there was an unexpected learning opportunity.




The original idea for my Bola scarf came from this book published (in French) by La Droguerie.  There are so many original ideas in there, it’s one I return to time and again.  No worries about the French either, for the diagrams are clear enough for anyone with a little basic knitting/crochet skills and a bit of imagination to follow.
