I am in love with Doctor Watson. All reincarnations.
So when watching Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows I found an additional love.
Doctor John Watson's Scarf! Made by his beloved, Mary.
As I don't wear too many scarves these days (kids like to pull on them and I like to breathe!) I made a cowl version.

The brown is Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool
Grey is some unknown yarn from the Thrift Store
Blue is doubled up sock yarn from my stash that had the right color Grin

I used 2 blue buttons to join and a crochet edge for somewhat of a nice finish.

I did a 20 stitch cast on and then a 1X1 rib on up from there. I wanted it to look as it did in the movie around the neck.

Here's an action shot!

Because I'm silly!

Thanks for looking!

Love this! First, ever since the first time i saw the scarf in the trailer, i was in love with it. I thought about making one for myself, but i haven't had the time or money. I could totally find enough in my stash for a cowl!

Thanks for the idea. Wink
Seriously, though, it looks awesome.
