UNION TRUE LOVE SCARF
This was an entry in the Philadelphia Union season ticket holder scarf competition. We won the competition with another design, but the front office of the organization allowed us to have these made for our own pleasure. The Union crest has a coiled snake in the center. The team address is Seaport Drive, right on the Delaware River. With these two thoughts brought together, the design started with a quick pen sketch emulating some seafaring flash. From there it was input into the computer and recreated pixel by pixel allowing for the distortion of the knitting machines (pixels are square, stitches are elongated). The final result is what you can see here. The manufacturer called the most difficult scarf he's ever knitted. The theme was expanded to include a more vertical motif for use on T Shirts.
