Sadly it can get pretty cold here in the UK at times and keeping your neck warm can help the rest of your body stay warm as well. It is said that the modern scarf has its origins all the way in Ancient Egypt in 1350 BC! But we are not here to have a history lesson, we are here to look at ten of the craziest scarves and neck warmers money can buy. If you are looking to buy one I have found ten of the best money can buy that will not only keep you warm but also admired…
Nyan Cat Scarf
Nyan Cat is the name of a YouTube video which became an Internet meme. But I have no idea why I am telling you that because if you are a nerd like me you already knew! Anyway, it makes a great looking scarf and is well worth including in this top 10.
Doctor Who Scarf
Watch the nerd fighting commence…The best Doctor Who ever was Tom Baker, FACT! (although Capaldi is good) And you can get his iconic scarf on the link. Did anyone get a problem? BRING IT ON!
Super Mario Piranha Plant Scarf
The first appearance of Piranha Plants was in World 1-2 of Super Mario Bros and they were semi-common enemies of Mario. Nowadays they are just into knitting scarves inspired by themselves.
First off I will give you the fact that it is a little odd. But this is my top 10 and I think it is cool! What?… OK, OK, I admit it, I thought it was a little weird as well. But visually it is a real talk about the scarf that is sure to turn heads! Just as long as it is not worn at a Vegetarian Party.
These are a little too rude for a present for an elderly mum. (maybe I am a prude) but in Japan, these have gone viral! With it being the gift of the year in 2010 there are literally thousands of them and you can have tattoos, piercings and every colour under the sun!
“The quick brown scarf wraps around the lazy dog’s neck” is sadly not a phrase that contains all of the letters of the alphabet. But it does sum up this great looking scarf that doesn’t cost the earth but would be a real talking point, and is in fact still quite nerdy because it is inspired by the web browser Firefox!
Crime Scene Scarf
The scarf with real attitude and maybe one for all the CSI nerds out there. It has a look like the crime scene tape found over many a murder scene and makes you stand out like a sore thumb. This is knitting, urban style!
Mike Tysons: Knockout Scarf
A lovely nerdette who goes by the name “Beatboxtaun” knitted this incredible classic Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out scarf. While the link does go to a scarf that is already sold if you ask (or beg) nicely enough maybe Beatboxtaun could make one very similar for you.
In fact, this goes nicely with yesterday’s blog “Unusual Pizza Cutters” and while this tasty looking scarf didn’t quite make it to number one I think for us pizza lovers it would be a great gift to receive. If you are looking for some unusual scarves to knit, this is the right post for you!
Super Mario Level 1 Scarf
Level 1-1 of Super Mario Bros is the one that everyone remembers. The iconic monsters, coin blocks and of course Super Mario himself and it is all on this one epic scarf! And given the fact that it doesn’t cost that much means it just had to be number 1.
