I knit this puppy for boyfriend for the holidays--he's a classy guy who likes purple (I like  grey), dinosaurs, and happens to look good in a scarf.  Boyfriend and I at Rockefeller center:


The boyfriend alone, with the T-rex chasing the brontosaurus on the left-hand side.



The stats:

9" wide x 6 ft long, knit in the round on size 5 with Paton's Classic wool.  All the charts are my own, and except for the bottoms, the ends are mirror images.  There's 3/4" ribbing at the bottom to prevent curling.  It's super soft, and he loves it! Kiss

I love how subtle the dinos are, they don't take away from the class of the scarf.  It's beautiful!
And you two are so precious, oh my god!

It's smart not to eat anything you find in a mirror.

I love when someone takes something classy and incorporates a little silliness! You did an amazing job! It's fantastic! I haven't attempted the fair isle method (is it a method?) yet myself. Great job!!!

I have to agree with nofury. Deliciously classy and silly! Want one!

Excellent job. I just might show my husband (who I know will be jealous), but I'm not sure I can cast on for that right now! (And I know I"ll have to!)
