Terrific Team scarf

I finally found the solution to the earlier scarf problem. In knitting scarves to sell, several people requested some in local school colors. I remember when those were a hot item to wear with your letter jacket. Evidently, they are not available any more. I tried to knit a few in garter stitch using some fancy yarns but I wasn’t happy with the results. Then I remembered a pattern for team scarves in an old magazine article. I stumbled across it and made this one up for my husband. (Go Vols!) It’s a simple knit 1, purl 1 rib on about 40 stitches and 24 rows per color band. All of the samples in the magazine were 2-color, but I think they can be made with a third accent color. There are 15 bands, starting and ending with the base color. Then I made the fringe 2 color instead of the base color like the samples. That’s me. Never one to go by the directions. I always have to be unique somehow. That is the fun of making things by hand–adding your own personal style.

    Very cute! I’m going to have to do this! Wonder what happened to my letter jacket? Oops — it’s in the closet because that was 23 years ago — and my body shape has changed somewhat….Oh well. It’s great!
