Update on Crackerjack

crackerjack at all star break

 

I started knitting this cowl months ago.  At the start of the Minnesota Twins season actually.  It’s called the Crackerjack Scarf and it’s so much fun.

 

It’s knit in the round, on a 16″ circular needle.  Every 2 rounds represents 1 MN Twins game.  Red is a home win, blue is an away win and the light and dark grey are home and away losses.  The Twins are on the All Star Break now, so I am halfway through the scarf! It’s going to be the perfect length to wrap twice around the neck.  Even better if they make it into post season play:)

 

My favorite part of this cowl is that you can only knit so far.  There is no need to feel guilty that you haven’t finished yet!  They play a game and I knit 2 rounds with the appropriate color.

 

It’s gonna be a great gift for the Twins lover in my family:)

 

here is my earlier blog post that tells you all about the yarn I’m using.

    I hope to see lots more red and blue on this cowl.

    My husband suggested some refinements, including gold rows for a game with a Twins home run; and, we could always add a hideous contrasting color for an error…… I told him I didn’t think so. The cowl is beautiful!
