|For some reason, the plum colored yarn appears indigo. Gr.|
I have discovered in some knitting books that it is possible to knit dates and messages into scarves.
Let me explain. The code itself is a relatively simple one. I made 1 stand for A, 2 stand for B, 3 stand for C, and so on. In the scarf, the garter stitch pattern that I use forms ridges or rows. The number of ridges per stripe stands for a letter. If you count the number of the first purple stripe-4 ridges-that means that the first letter is D. The second stripe has 15 ridges, so the second letter is O. The white stripe is only 3 ridges wide. Does this make sense? Eventually the scarf will read, "Doctor Whos (no apostrophe) Companion." :)
Pretty cool, eh?
