Most Sinterklaas and Christmas presents I am creating now are top secret, except for this one: a scarf for one of the girls in the family. She is kind of always cold in wintertime and requested a huge scarf that would match both her black and dark brown jacket.
We found wool in three matching colours and I designed this knitted cable pattern. I made more progress in the last few days, but of course that is part of the surprise for her (and you) on December 5th :-)

Oh and the leather and wooden buttons: I found them at the craft-fair in Rotterdam as well!


  1. Mooie sjawl gaat dat worden zeg! Jij kan dat goed!

    Kan ze binnenkort lekker warm rondlopen in de Nederlandse kou (ga er vanuit dat 't weer zo koud wordt als vorig jaar hihi)

    Groetjes, Veronique
