I have a great idea for a scarf but don't know how to quite execute it! I'm a huge Beatles fan and thought of doing one of their lyrics down the length of the scarf (either "All you need is Love" or, depending on how many rows would make it long enough, "And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make") but I have never done this kind of work.
So, what I thought I would do is this--st st with a garter st border, using a XS alphabet, and in white on black (maybe with the word Love in red, or the O being a red heart).
Anyone have any idea on how I can design this pattern? How many stitches and rows and some basics on how to knit it? Is it too difficult? Do I need bobbins? When I knit it, the design is shown on the purl side and the knit side I should just knit the white wherever it shows up, yes? Thanks for any and all advice!
