My boss egged me into making this musical scarf for him. From what was supposed to be a simple scarf it progressed to two colors, with music notes and double knit. Every time I showed him how far I knit his face would light up. It was that and his passion for music and his bass guitar that kept me going even when it seemed like I’d never finish it. Granted it took me a year but better late than never, right?

NOTE: Hi all, Geri kindly pointed out that the scarf’s music notes aren’t musically accurate. The second pdf is an extended and musically correct version of “Hey Jude”. I deeply apologize for the inaccuracy; I didn’t even think to play the notes but as I’m tone deaf I probably wouldn’t have even noticed that it didn’t sound right. I hope everyone enjoys knitting it.
FYI: I didn’t test knit this version but it should be okay since I just moved the notes around a bit.
FYI2: I think it’s best to buy 3 balls of each color for this version.
