TFioScarf by harelquin-demon TFioScarf by harelquin-demon
Available in my Etsy shop, MyAlterknits, here [link]

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our scarves.

I love John Green's newest novel The Fault in our Stars, the story is amazing and that book cover BRILLIANT! So inspired by the cover, the story and the amazingness of Nerdfighteria, I decided to knit this scarf. I've seen other The Fault in our Stars related items and they include yellow for the Signed Copy sticker but I could not work the colour into the design and I was a little scorned because my pre-order wasn't signed.

My friend ~DoctorBellatrix helped me design it, she's also helped me with business cards, the logo on my website and my new cover photo on my Facebook page [link] My artsy fartsy photoshopping friend. I can't do anything on a computer but give me two pointy sticks (or four) and a bit of string and I can blow your mind!

I've decided to donate 15% of the sale to the This Star Won't Go Out foundation.

I don't know what else to say besides BUY THIS BOOK SOOOOOOOO GOOD!

:la: I'm in love with this book, and I'm obsessed with knitting, so I'm not sure I can adequetly describe to you how AWESOME you are. Shoptalk- did you use a medium weight yarn? It sort of loods like it from the scale of the book, but I can't tell. This design is so amazing. :love:

Thank you. The scarf was a collaboration between myself and my friend ~DoctorBellatrix She was insistent on the stripes which at the time I wasn't sold on. I'm so proud of how it turned out. It's awesome having something that was a collaboration between my friend and myself be so popular.
The blue was a medium yarn, but the black and white were worsted weight.

Oh I cried, well I'd laugh and then cried. When I finished it I had an Ester Day moment with my Mom. It's fantastic! A great read!

The TFioScarf pun or the Brutus pun? Because the TFioScarf pun is because it's a tongue twister to say The Fault in our Stars Scarf without accidentally dropping the stars, also hence the Brutus pun.

Oh, I know. It's such a funny yet heartbreaking novel (all the best ones are...)

I was thinking of the Brutus pun at the time, but I love both of them :heart:

Seriously. I saw you start working on this, and I was like, jumping with excitement that it was going to be in existence.

It looks awesome. Exactly the way it did in my head. >.<

I was going to start earlier but then you know the Doctor Who Tumblr thing happened and I got distracted.
At least it makes you and a bunch of other nerdfighters happy!

It's done now, and therefore any amount of time waited is irrelevant due to extreme levels of awesome.

Well every time I tried to say "The Fault in our Stars Scarf" some how the stars would disappear because it is a bit of a tongue twister.
Hence that and the name of the scarf.

On Facebook I put "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in my scarves."

Oh my goodness, that is lovely! Seriously, now I want one, and would totally buy it if I had the cash.
Also, I agree with your statement. The book was fantastic! I do believe it has become my favorite John Green book. <3

Anyway, yes, awesome scarf! :D

I remember reading the book in five hours because I have a heavy university reading load so I was like "If I don't read it now, I won't read it until April." Then I laughed, and cried, then had to call my mom and have an Ester Day moment with her.
I don't know if it's my favorite, I think it's tied with Paper Towns because that was the first book I read by him and I read that one in a day as well.

Ah yeah, Paper Towns was really good too. I believe that was my first of his too! :)
