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 :wink:
I LOVE Mary Poppins :smiley: Lonnie gave me the special edition dvd last year. Mary is timeless :wink: My youngest daughter loved Mary Poppins so much that she is working her way thru college as a nanny :wink:

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 :wink:

I found this pattern that may work if u use bigger needles :smiley:

ooo the scarf looks complicatied but the stitch pattern looks pretty easy. I can just add a long stringy fringe.

Now… to find yarn!

:heart: Thanks becca!

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! :wink:

:smiley: U r welcome, Hilde :wink:
LOL, I know what u mean about those straps, bren :smiley: I just loved the shape of the satchel bc it says…MARY POPPINS to me, it’s too cute…and on my very long “to do” list :wink:

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

If you scroll down the shopping bag has a similar stitch pattern.

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…

cool thanks everyone! I bought my yarn today at chix with sticks with KK!

:thinking:

…I saw some scarves like that on the straw.com free knitting pattern page.

Here is a pattern that looks exactly like it. You just need to add fringe.

The Opera Scarf from Blue Sky Alpacas

Ooooooo the opera scarf is exactly what I was looking for (thanks Hilde!! and Caroline).

I saw one similar in Surving Christmas worn by Christina Applegate, looks light and warm. :happydance:

Edit: Soz fixed pic sizes :slight_smile: or at least tried!
