The scarf that's also a toy!

A-Maze-ing Scarf. What the description says about being able to run a marble through the maze is true ... one of the cool things about double knitting is that the two layers of fabric are only joined where the colours switch sides. So the lines defining the "walls" of the maze actually will be barriers while the "floors" of the maze passages between them will all be hollow tubes. All the knitter has to do is leave an opening at each end for the marble to enter and exit.

Screamingly obvious once one sees it and yet nobody's thought of taking advantage of that little engineering fact in this way until this designer came along! :-)
