My aunt Peggy says that Granny needs a scarf, and it needs to not be too fiddly for a 99 year old blind lady, and it needs to go with her red coat and her black coat, and give some colour to her cheeks. Ta da! Simple and classic, I think. Though I am a LITTLE concerned that it’s tiny, and won’t be warm enough; I’m tempted to add a third repeat across the width.


This pattern is clear, but man, I’d be zipping along so much faster if I were reading a chart instead of written-out rows. Oh well.

I like the clever way of dividing for the keyhole/tube. I’m thinking, though, that the scarf doesn’t need TWO keyholes, so for the second half of the scarf, I think I’ll do ribbing or something to narrow that section, without actually making a second pass-through spot. We’ll see. I just finished the first keyhole, so there’s a ways to go before I have to make that decision.


And… done! I did do ribbing on the second half, rather than a second pass-through. Such a quick little project… I still feel like it’s tiny, but I have to keep reminding myself that GRANNY is tiny too!
