I’ve just finished up a couple of these police line scarves, a holiday order. I love these, they are quick and fun to knit. They are yet another project I took from the pages of Craft. I made a few modifications. First, I knitted the scarf in such a way as to retain the ribbing all the way down the length of it.
I think this helps it to stay flat.
I also knitted a hat using some wool yarn that I dyed using natural dyes. The green and yellow are from osage orange sawdust and the brown is from something called cutch extract which I bought. Darla is seen modeling it here with one of the police line scarves.
I think I am going to keep this hat for myself, as I really really love it. Can you have too many hats?
I also knitted a piggy.
He has a curly tail you can almost see in the picture. He was made of wool that was dyed with madder root. I used the piggy pattern from The Children’s Year for him.
