Mary Poppins Scarf

Last fall while on my trip to Chicago, I visited Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives at the Museum of Science and Industry. What an awesome exhibit! It’s still open, and will be through August 3 – it’s well worth a trip if you’ll be in Chicago this summer.

One of my favorite parts of the exhibit was the Mary Poppins portion (they had the snowglobe on display!). Among the artifacts was this Mary Poppins costume, and guess which part interested me most?

I’d love to make a replica of the scarf, but haven’t done too much research on yarn/patterns that would work well. I do like this lovely interpretation on stitchknit. If you were going to make a version this scarf, what yarn would you use?

  1. I have been looking for a pattern and such for a while. Popped into a knit shop and asked. After looking things up it is a really fine yarn on a # 15 or larger needle. I’m attepting a trial run on a medium weight and a # 13. Definatly need a much smaller weight and a bigger needle size.
