Help Knit a Scarf for a Trafalgar Square London Lion for Cancer Research!!!

Good Day to You Manly Knitters!

We want you to be part of warming up a London icon for charity!

As you may or may not know Stitch and Bitch London are attempting to knit a gigantic scarf for one of the rather chilly-looking Trafalgar Square lions. The scarf will be raffled off for Cancer Research after being presented to the lion in the New Year, and one lucky winner will get a 43.5 foot scarf to wrap around their armchair/tree/house/partner.

The scarf will be presented to the lion in the New Year so you have plenty of time to knit your bit.

We would like as many people as possible to knit a piece of it. You can knit the smallest, teeny tiny part or a huge chunk, in whichever yarn you fancy using. If you wish to begin knitting your part of the giant scarf at home here are the dimensions.

The scarf will be an enormous:

10 inches (25.5cm) by 43.5 feet (13.25 metres)
Yarn: The most hideous or bizarre yarn you have.
