I have completed another Super Scarf for the 2012 Indianapolis Super Bowl.
Lucas Oil Stadium (LOS) is an obvious fixture in Indianapolis, so anyone attending the big game should have no trouble getting there. When I flew to Indy for the final fitting of Blue’s uni-scarf, I used Indy’s public transportation everywhere I went.
From the airport to downtown Indy, GN and I took the Green Line.
From the knit-in at the Marion County Library to our hotel, GN and I took a city bus.
From our hotel to Lucas Oil Stadium on game day, GN and I took a cab.
All of them worked out just great! But I got to thinking about my cab ride and wanted to be helpful, at least to the one person who receives this scarf.
Here’s how it goes. You hop into your cab and tell the driver you’re heading to the stadium . . . or just hold up the following Super Scarf!
The lettering reads as follows:
LOS, 500 South Capitol Avenue, Indianapolis, IN
The scarf was constructed ende-to-end using the garter stitch with a long center panel of stockinette stitch for the lettering. Since garter and stockinette do not have the same gauge, I used short rows to accommodate the difference.
I just checked the Super Scarf website and it shows a total of 11,551 Super Scarves have been collected so far. It’s been fun to watch the numbers climb. Check it out for yourself at: http://www.indianapolissuperbowl.com/super-scarves/
