This is my stash bustin' stroke of genius... If you've seen it elsewhere, don't tell me or I'll cry. I admit to seeing something similar at the department store and wanting to copy it. But the eyes... those are mine. Knit in garter stitch until you have a square, break yarn at about 4 ", change colors, knit until you have another square, break yarn at about 4 ", change colors... Just leave the 'legs' dangling. When it's as long as you like, cast off. Now, cut 8" pieces and tie 'legs' on the other side to match. Sew on button eyes and call it the Centipede Scarf!
The first picture shows what it looks like wearing it's face. The second shows it using the 'eyes' buttoned through the scarf to hold a shape. Simple.
Our Advent Book by Jack and Kathy Stockman is a tradition that we've had for about 7 years. When I purchased this beautiful volume it was a real splurge, but I was in love. Now I wish that I had splurged double because I know 2 girls who will fight over it when it's time to start the tradition with their own children.
