Description

Behold the Obey scarf. This has to be the most tedious, time-sucking knitting project I have ever talked myself into, yet with an amazing finished product! I started it in May and after working on it for about 2 hours(this is just an average) every single day, I finally finished it towards the end of June. It was my man’s birthday present, and even though I was about 2 weeks late, he loved it just like I had hoped he would(and if he didn’t, well bad things would happen). I found a pattern for it on Knitty.com and knew immediately that I had to make one for my man, and another for my best friend’s birthday as well. By now you are probably thinking “why not make one for you?” and I have asked myself that on many occasions. So instead of committing to another 2 month long binge-knitting bout, I just snagged the one I made for my man(thankfully we are still together) and plan on holding it hostage for a while. The second one I made for my best friend is in the usual red and black, but I made the mistake of using acrylic yarn for hers, which made it even heavier.
This scarf was knit using intarsia, with mirror images on both sides, so it used about 8 balls of yarn, and is extremely thick and awesome!

Material Notes

many many yards of wool yarn, size 5 straight and circular needles(so tiny for such a long scarf), darning needle, alot of time, and as much patience as you can come up with!

Difficulty

Novice

    Um, okay I think there is a little confusion here. There is absolutely no political affiliation with Shepard Fairey and Obey Giant whatsoever, it is to provoke thought about how our society works, not to press your political beliefs on people. I am sorry if it is offensive or obscene to anyone, but keep in mind, it isn’t supposed to mean anything! Its just art, and this is merely a scarf with Andre the Giant’s face on it.

    Very nice scarf - but IMHO this is a sewing forum and there is NO need for politics! I’m from Europe and wouldn’t bother you with german politics – I feel very strange watching this!
