So, I saved it up for all these months, and gave it to her for her birthday last week instead!
Here it is.....
I didn't follow a pattern. I just started knitting a scarf, then had the idea to add some duffle buttons and turn it into a collar-thingamybob.
I quite liked it. And I think I might knit one for myself too, if I can remember what I did.
Am I attempting anything more difficult than rectangles of fabric in my knitting yet? Errr..... no!!! I must get on to that, as it was one of my crafty resolutions for 2013.....
