Poor Bob has been waiting a long time for this scarf. It always seems to get pushed to the back of the line. But now that Christmas is over, I have vowed to concentrate on Bob’s Piano Keyboard Scarf. Here you see it before I put the chain on…. one octave complete!
I started this scarf probably more then a year ago. I found the chart and knitting instructions online and started knitting away in stockinette. I wasn’t as wise as I am now, and didn’t realize that without a border this puppy was gonna roll…….
and roll, and roll! I also didn’t like the way the back looked. I got very discouraged and put it away for a while. I thought about lining the back with fabric, but nothing appealed to me. When I finally decided to get this project out and get it finished, I sat down and searched the internet again to see what other people had done. I found a double-knit scarf, but I wasn’t up to that. I did a potholder double-knit once and that was enough for me. I looks very pretty though.
Then I found this crochet version on Cats-Rockin-Crochet blog. It was just what I was looking for. Here is how far I have gotten. I am very happy with it. Bob’s scarf is well on it’s way!
Two Octaves Done!!!
