Ok, this is quite a tale...

I was looking into angeling for someone, and while I was waiting on the organizer to get back to me (someone else got the job, bummer), I started looking at what I could craft.  On the young lady's pinterest was a pic of this scarf and she LOOOOOVED it!  Well, looking at it, I realized that several kids at my house would love it too, and one of them is NOTORIOUSLY tough to shop for.

Sooo... I followed the pinterest links and found this pattern on ravelry

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/justice-league-scarf

I'm a novice knitter at best, so I was intimidated, to say the least.  But I checked out some video tutorials on youtube, scrounged up some yarn and went to town.  I made a LOT of mistakes, especially on the Green Lantern panel 'cause it was my first one (thankfully, my son is pretty forgiving).

It's knitted in Fair Isle, and I adjusted the pattern somewhat so that when the scarf is around his neck, the logos on the ends will be right side up.  I also widened the scarf somewhat, thinking it would be too narrow for his taste otherwise, and I think if I were to do this again (I have another son clamoring for one as well), I would just stick with the width on the original pattern.



couldn't fit the whole length in one photo

You did an awesome job for your first piece!! Wink I know your son will love it, because you made it with love!
I've been wanting to make my boyfriend a scarf for Xmas, and this would be perfect!! Cheesy
I'm not even a novice, but if you were able to do this good of a job, well then maybe I'll be able to do one too. Undecided
Thanks for the inspiration!

The pattern itself lists the techniques that are suitable.  I went online to learn about them, and decided that Fair Isle was going to be the easiest for me, and would take less yarn than double knit.  I'd never done it before, so it was a learning experience, which made it that much more fun!  I'll be doing more of these for Christmas this year, for SURE!!  Wink
