Scarf for the Teacher

A dark and wet day here once again. Bush Boy is sick with a stomach bug that is going through the school. Work was intense today. Time for some candles and warm dinner and knitting. Excuse the pictures, they were taken today with a flash – see dark and wet above.

This year I let Bush Boy pick a scarf pattern for his teacher’s gift. He picked a pattern called Flo, which was a free pattern on Ravelry. It is a brioche stitch pattern, cleverly using plain rib and brioche to lovely effect. I used an acrylic yarn, good old Red Heart, for ease of washing and care. I really like this scarf, it is warm and cushy and soft.

The colour in the work-in-progress picture is the most accurate.

Bush Boy is happy with it, so that’s a good thing.



  1. BB’s teacher is going to LOVE this pretty, new scarf! You do amazing work, Kate and you’re quick, too! Enjoy your warm evening! (as my hands are ‘iceburgs’ whilst typing this). Baby, it’s cold out there! Going to go get my fingerless mitts . . .

    • Hope that BB’s feeling better!

  2. love the scarf – what a really cool pattern! bushboy’s teacher will love it for sure!

    i hope he’s feeling better, the stomach flu is no fun at all.

  3. Lucky teacher! The scarf is lovely. Hope Bushboy is soon feeling better. Ros

  4. Wow, if it weren’t for all the other days, I’d so want to be a teacher right now. :D Neat pattern.

  5. I’ve never seen this pattern before but really like the texture of it. BB has good taste! Lucky teacher!
