pattern planning for a schools scarf
Well, my youngest son is now all settled into his second year of law school. Therefore, I can finally plan a school colors muffler type scarf for him. I am going to make a scarf which will be stripes of all the school colors from each school he has attended in order. Preschool, elementary, two middle schools (we opened a new one), high school, bachelor's degree, master's degree and now law school. My design problem is that we live along the coast, and soooo many of the schools use blue for the ocean as their color. Even so, I think I will make the stripes in the order that he went to each school, and so some blues and whites or blues and yellows will be repeated. Interestingly, I called his law school last year. Officially they do not have a school color, but I was told all their pamphlets and letterhead use a kahki, so that will be what I will use. I sure hope he likes it. Have not decided if I will crochet the stripes the length of the scarf or knit wide stripes across the width of the scarf.
Has anyone knit a scarf in ribbing the entire length? Or maybe I should use a circular needle and make a tube type of scarf for added sturdiness. Cannot decide what to do.
