Mary Poppins
For some reason, I have an overwhelming desire to knit a mary poppins scarf! All I can find are crochet patterns.... Any knitting ideas?

It looks like lace pattern on large needles may be helpful
I LOVE Mary Poppins :D Lonnie gave me the special edition dvd last year. Mary is timeless My youngest daughter loved Mary Poppins so much that she is working her way thru college as a nanny

Oh, I forgot, I have a pattern from Interweave Knits that has a satchel reminscent of Mary Poppins that I must make...bc it reminds me of MP

Now... to find yarn!

Mary Poppins is one of my all time favorite movies (Though i nearly always fast forward through the animated part!)

Becka that is the ONLY IK magazine i have ever bought (most of the patterns are for stuff i have no interest in knitting!) because of that very satchel. I really should get to making it. though i must admit, i was thinking of doing it in stripes or something instead of the flowers...and those red straps have GOT to go unless they work with the stripes!

I was thinking lots of yarn overs with big needles would work.

I made one of these using a pattern from the very first issue of creative knitting... I think it was called the sophisticated scarf or something like that... I'm not home right now, so I don't have the pattern to reference, but I believe it was simply yo, k2tog for the bulk of the pattern, and yes, on big needles...
