this is my finished father’s 70th birthday scarf.
i will be giving pops the scarf when all the kids go home for thanksgiving. i can blog about it because i am certain that dad has never seen my blog. so no chance of ruining the surprise…..
...as he is now seventy years of age i am ok with this.
manly scarf (ok lame name) pattern can be found here
thank you jennie for the free pattern!
3 skeins kraemer yarns tatamy tweed dk (750 yards) ~ my choice of a cotton blend tweed in a dad like color (walnut)
size 8 needles
knitting double stranded.
(note: a nice project to take on the go. i will be making the same scarf in a 6yr old size with the same yarn and a doggie pocket. that way grandpa and grandson can enjoy together)
i picked a project that would use the first pair of needles dad bought me. a nice hand made size 8 made from walnut (hence the color of the yarn.)
end project 70in. long. so i ended up using 3 skeins of yarn in the end (instead of two) to get the length.
will use the same yarn for my nephew single stranded on a needle size 5. let’s hope it works out!
