The history of jacquard scarves
The football scarf is knitted in jacquard technique. At the beginning of the 19th century, a french weaver called Joseph-Marie Jacquard invented a technique to weave complicated patterns in an automated way. The principle of Monsieur Jacquard was transfered to knitting. That's how complicated patterns can be knitted easily nowadays.
