BBC Scarfgate Scarf of Doom
Knitted on BBC Breakfast News live & in the green room, on Jan. 11th 2012 in less than 3 hours.
It caused so much controversy in the online aftermath that the internet nearly imploded in woolly horror. It’s been described as “truly hideous”, “enough to put anyone off knitting for life” and “the fugliest scarf ever”. In the wake of its knitting the knitter’s mental health, knitting credentials, needle holding, appearance, tension, & intelligence have been questioned by total strangers.
This is a scarf to be reckoned with.
A simple scarf, the pattern includes a bit of advice for any knitter who worries what people think of them, & is offered to show support for a knitters’ world where everyone can knit what they like, when they like, however they like, without worrying someone will treat them like dirt for doing so.
Pass it on to knitters who might need a boost, a laugh or encouragement to leave the ‘yarn haterz’ herd & stand with the happier carefree knitters.
