It's that season again, so it seems like a good time to mention the original side of ThePaintedTiger..... custom knit striped rugby scarves. How is this done, you may ask? You simply choose two colors from my list of Red, Burgundy, Orange, Yellow, Gold, Green, Hunter, Blue, Navy, Grey, Brown, Cream, White, and Black (other colors may be available upon request), choose your fringe length, and check out. Your scarf will be knit and in the mail to you within 10 days of order.
This is the BIG scarf, and measures about 7 inches wide and 80 inches long. This particular one was requested in Gryffindor colors of Harry Potter fame. All of my scarves are knitted in a thick rib knit and then carefully finished so the ends don't flare out. Then I add your choice of fringe....none, 3", or 7".
As you can see, the scarf itself is about knee length on an average person, and the fringe hangs around the shins. It makes the custom scarf perfect for wrapping, and the BIG size can even be used to wrap the head if needed.
Like the length but not the width? I offer the LONG Custom Scarf. These knit scarves are 5 inches wide and 80 inches long. This particular Navy Blue and Gold (Maize) scarf was given as a Christmas gift to a Michigan fan.
Finally, I have the Regular Custom Knit Scarf. The size is 5 x 70 inches, which puts the scarf around mid-thigh on most people (before fringe). It's the perfect length for car coats, or if you like your scarf for decoration instead of functionality. This yellow and black combo was very popular last year as a scarf for Hufflepuff, Iowa Hawkeyes, and Appalacian State.
Ok, really finally.....if you have something else you would like made, please do contact me to see if I can make a custom custom order for you. For example, I made this scarf for a Dr. Who fan who wanted something more managable to wear for everyday:
So.....if you don't knit, or do knit but are overwhelmed and need some help, do remember ThePaintedTiger Custom Knit Striped Scarves for your holiday gift giving, for birthdays, or your favorite University or Sports Team fan!

First up is Cascade. It is a blend of deep pine green, browns and tans, and a splash of aqua/teal.
Next is Bed of Roses. It has crisp greens and perky pinks.
This next one I had some trouble naming, but my friends on Ravelry helped me out! This is Suede and Sapphire, and is mostly browns, gold, and just a splash of stunning blue.
Antique Rose has gentle linen tans, a soft green, and gentle burgundy.
Winter Morning has soft blues, greys, and a bit of buttery sun peeking through.
This one is on supersock....Cranberry is a saturated red just right for the holidays.
Limeade is on my merino lace, and is a refreshing semi-solid to show off your pattern.
I'm also trying to fill out some colors of semi-solids. This week I did sage and pale purple. Each is available on Supersock and Tiger Twist.
Now I'm back to the studio to hand dye up another batch of yarn and fiber just for you!
