Don’t You (Forget About Me): Bind Off

The Name

Don’t You (Forget About Me) by Simple Minds

This is a very appropriate name for this gift for my pharmacist. Not that he would forget me; he treats me so nice. The name refers more to my medications, which I am constantly forgetting to take. Even now as I type this, I realize I forgot to take my morning, after-meal meds. Aiyaa! If I remember, I’ll take them after I finish this post.

The Scarf

Dimensions: 60 x 6 inches
Pattern: Sweeney Todd Scarf By Vanessa Gribowski
Needle Size: US 8 Needle
On The Needles: May 15-June 25, 2020

I have been wanting to make something for my pharmacist, who is so kind and accommodating, I feel spoiled and special. I asked him his favorite color, but forgot to ask how tall he is. I have estimated about five foot, eight inches tall.

The Yarn

Rowan Kid Classic
Color 00896; Content: 80% Wool, 22% Mohair, 8% Polyamide; Weight: Aran

I find it curious that Ravelry considers this Aran weight, despite guage  of 18-19 sts and recommended needle size of US 8-9. I would call it worsted for the actual DK weight plus the brushing which adds a little bulk.
