This is a fun scarf. It is double knit, which means like all my scarves it is double sided. I used three colors for the portrait, and a tiny bit of needlework – to make his smile and outline his head.
The motifs are in honor of the game Kingdom Hearts, and the key is probably my favorite: it’s got a pumpkin head and a little bat where the key teeth usually go!
Look at the little bat eyes! I love when a design looks just the way you want it to, just how you pictured it. Well, I don’t mean you, you – I mean me. But I bet you recognize the feeling, if you’ve ever created something from concept to completion.
It took me all evening to get the pattern collected and completed. It is surprising me how many pieces I need to remember to make sure I have the pattern ready for someone else to read. It was less fun than designing it in the first place. An interesting sensation.
This is another in the Christmas gift series of scarves I made this fall. I can’t wait to pass it on, though I will miss it. But I know the recipient is going to really like it. That makes me feel good!
