Just fininished this for my little bro for Xmas.

It was inspired by a novelty plaster ("plaster"=bandaid to non-Brits...) and that police tape scarf that was in Magnits a few months ago.



I used patons gold DK on 4.5mm. The tension's a little bit loose but I couldn't be bothered changing my chart when I realised it would be too small on 3.5mm's (getting the proportions right was everything with this project).

Its a bit short as a scarf for my tastes but it's backed with fleece which makes it super-warm so you don't need to double it round your neck and goes once-round quite neatly. Also, because its backed with fleece you can wear it with the plain black showing (rather than just busting the whole "my sister knitted me a novelty intarsia thing for xmas" look...)

I'm about to post some more xmas FOs to my LiveJournal.

That looks very cool , any chance of brightening your pic though as you can't really make out the wording on the crayon .

Looks amazing

I did think it was a tad dark and I would brighten if I could. But I can't. My computer/ photo systems are a bit poo as present.

I can see it fine on my moniter though (though on my laptop I had to tilt the screen a tad). Maybe if you brighten your settings?
