This scarf measures 7 feet 4 inches (88 inches) length by 9.5 inches width, and the double layered double knit fabric mixed with the lusciously soft yarn makes it something to snuggle up in which will keep you warm in the coldest weather. Plus the colours mean that it is perfect for either men or women, the only requirements are a liking for Warhammer. The double headed aquilla logo celebrates the famous models without being too loud or obvious; a great way to subtly show off your geekery.

This is not a very difficult pattern, though it does take a long time to do, so I would suggest that some knowledge of double knitting is useful.
