Piano Scarf
This was made for our (yes, I'm taking lessons with my DD10) Piano Teacher for Christmas. This is http://vickidesigns.homestead.com/Piano.html where I got the pattern.

I loved making it for her and loved watching her open it even more.

That's so cool! I might have to get my son to make one for his piano teacher. How many keys did you make, all 88?

Wait a minute. How did you do the back? Did you knit along and then fold it and sew up the side or knit a separate peice and sew together?

Feministmama,

I made two separate pieces and then crocheted them together. I don't think there were 88 keys cause there are white rows in the middle (I wish I would have just put the keys).

It was the first time I used two colors and I didn't want all my mistakes showing on the back so I covered them with the striped black and white pattern. The scarf is THICK and HEAVY and will keep her WARM.
