The Nutcracker Soldier Scarf

 

I love the nutcracker soldiers. They are inevitable part of my Christmas scenery which I put up every year on my living room dresser and there is something deep inside of me that ignites whenever I see a nutcracker soldier :)

So, as it happened, I came across this idea on pinterest where a lady has worked a knit scarf to look like a soldier by putting googly eyes and strands of yarn to imitate hair, and when I saw it, I thought why not making it look more like a soldier in a uniform and a hat and everything one can think of to make it as identical as possible. And Voila! Here's my take of it. I worked it on my whims and I love it!

Now, when it's done, I am thinking of redoing the hair, adding black pupils on the eyes, redoing the golden  part on the hat and eventually adding something golden to the uniform (buttons perhaps?). 

Also, I am thinking of making him a friend but this time in navy blue and golden...

Very cute scarf. You could try putting the hair on the back as well. For a touch of gold you can use big sequins or crochet/embroidery using gold colour thread.
