The gift shop however, was a little on the expensive side. We bought a few little bits but the lovely scarves were £40 which was a bit out of our budget. In a rash moment I said "Don't worry, I'll make you one". Just under 1 year later * - whoop whoop, it's finished!
It's knitted on a round needle so it doesn't roll up at the edges but isn't rib.
The good news is - it's all knit, none of that purl nonsense to slow you down!
The bad news is - it's double thickness so that's twice as much knitting!
Here is the pattern, with a simple version first for more experienced knitters. If you are more of a newby just scroll down as I've included lots of pictures and instructions on how to make the colour changes/tassels etc in case you haven't tackled anything like this before. (If you can't knit at all there are loads of great videos on youtube, I've not covered that here!)
