The Monster

It's time for another blog update, and another HurwichCraft pattern. This time we're taking a break from sweaters and from Shakespeare. This is the first scarf I designed, and it was quite some time ago, but I thought I would share it with you all now. 

Be warned though, this scarf is a monster. It is probably the warmest thing in my closet. I used a super chunky yarn, and then I cabled it, and in a reversible cable no less. If that weren't enough I knit this guy to be six feet. So it can pretty much wrap around my head. Not really July appropriate attire, but once the temperature drops, this is is about as warm as it gets for scarves.

I chose a bold and whimsical color pattern. When you're knitting a monster, subtlety is not the way to go. You need to embrace the bold. My designs do tend to be on the more traditional side, and my color pallet toned down. It's important to throw a screw into the works sometimes, and every closet needs one piece that looks horribly out of place, but is loved nonetheless. This garment might take you some time. It is a super chunky yarn, but the reversible cable will keep you busy. Don't worry though, you'll have it ready for Halloween.

So without any more futzing about here is the pattern, and a song I think is more than a little appropriate that I hope brings a smile to your face.
