Vulcan Bomber Scarf (For The Love Of George)

The best way to describe George would be to use the words of his wife, (one of my best friends) Tracey aka MrsBiker.

On the 6th of October 2012 my gorgeous husband, George, died.He had suffered a subarrachnoid haemorrage on the 5th of October and he never regained consciousness.He was 56 years old.
George was my best friend and my soul mate.
We had been married over 27 years.I love him and I miss him with every fibre of my being.

They have one son Martyn who George doted on and taught him how to be a fine young man.

Georges passions in life other than his family and friends where his motor bikes and Vulcan Bombers.

Most of the proceeds of this pattern (other than running costs) will be donated to Georges favourite charity:

’Vulcan to the Sky’

I personally want to thank Tracey, Martyn and Rachel (Martyns partner), for being brave enough to let this novice do two patterns. Their strength through this tough time has been amazing, and their encouragement treasured.

I also want to thank Joy of theknittinggoddess.co.uk for her wonderful generosity of donating her wonderful yarn for me to use.

In the shawl I used the following techniques and stitches

Valve Stitch (stocking stitch form)
Upward Bound Stitch (middle spine)
Ladder Stitch
Cats Eye Stitch
Aligned Parentheses
Narrow Edging

A beginner should be able to do this, and there is a small photo tutorial for Valve stitch
