More of Meher Baba’s Real I

 

 

‘The Real I’ scarf is based on Meher Baba hand writing from the book ‘In God’s Hand’.

Through the whole book, Baba never uses the word ‘I’ for Himself, but only as ‘the real I’, ‘the infinite I’, ‘the limited I’, etc.

The scarf – very rich, soft, double stranded, with some double knit, is huge.

It’s almost like wearing a soft dress that reaches nearly to the ankles!

Rainbow Scarves

Rainbow colors delights my heart, and they are also a symbol for Meher Baba, so – double the fun!

Both scarves are knitted sideways.

Scarf one is v easy. Knit sideways and cut the yarn at the end of each row, leaving long tails.

CO # of sts for the length you want, in red, and leave long tail.

Row 1: knot red & orange, living long tails of both. k orange.

Row 2: Knot orange and yellow, living long tails. Knit yellow.

Continue like this to full rainbow ( green, blue, purple, light blue).

If the scarf is too narrow for your liking, repeat your steps backward:

after the light blue knit a purple row, then blue, green, yellow, orange and finish with red.

Give the tails a nice ‘haircut’, or live them wild!
