Jacqui's Double Knit Strata Scarf

Image
Some months ago One posted about a scarf - a scarf with possibly ill chosen colours - colours that reminded One of school days.
But a friend of One spotted the scarf and put dibs on it insisting she loved red and grey together.
One did not respond to said friend with any hint that she might indeed now be thought of with every stitch henceforth. 
It is time for the big reveal...


Jacqui's Double Knit Strata Scarf


Pre-Jacquazoic Period A time before Jacqui when tea and hearts ruled the world.




Jacquambrian Period When a chook lover put dibs on a scarf and confused a knitter
Jacquastrophic Event When grey wool became extinct
