I’m from Milwaukee– so it’s pretty obvious that I’ll be a Brewer’s fan.
I have my favorite players on the team and I love the gold/blue color palate they use for their Jerseys. I know the Baseball season is usually in the summer, but I figured since I didn’t want to pay a TON of money for a Jersey or the likes, that I could make something that no one else in the crowd would have.
Sadly I have not been to a Brewer game since before Miller Stadium was Miller Stadium. Time just hasn’t been on my side and tickets can get a tad pricey.
In any case, I wanted to create something for the off chance that I get to a game. I went to Loop and found this amazingly soft Debbie Bliss Como. I started with a K1P1 stitch and kept going until I ran out of yarn. I picked up two skeins each of blue and gold and wanted to make long stripes. I finished with both skeins of navy and one of the gold (Navy, Gold, Navy) and decided that it was a great length and needed some tassels. I pulled out the gold yarn and made some 4 inch tassels on each side. I love it best when it’s worn with the two ends looped through the middle of the scarf. That way the gold makes an appearance at the middle and the bottom.
