 Notes

I was helping someone with this pattern and decided to try it in regular worsted weight not, not fluffy yarn.

Very easy and simple. I decided it was easiest to work in the side post of the single crochet.

The top two photos show the truest colors.

Pattern was originally a Red Heart one using Red Heart Baby Clouds and/or Red Heart Light & Lofty Solid. Called "Boa" by Mary Jane Protus. The pattern was on the label of the yarn and also on the website (which it isn't any longer).

With the fluffy yarn, it would have been more fluffy and less loopy. I tried it with regular yarn to see how it would look.

The pictures were to help my friend out with the pattern.
