Leyton Orient Football Scarf

I was asked if I could crochet a scarf with the initial 'LOFC' on each end.  Again a new challenge for me but one I was happy to take on.

First I had to find the right colour red as not any old red would do.  So with the help of the very helpful ladies at Deramores, who searched their wool stock against a images on the web of the football club's strip, I was able to narrow down the red to one or shades.  The customer went with Rico Baby So Soft red and Rico Baby So Soft snow.

My next step was to make a graph for the lettering, which I did as below:

Then I just did alternating bands of red and white and put some tassels at each end.

This was a nice quick job and I was pretty happy with the outcome.
