The designer of this scarf Elisa Nutku shares the story of her design and scarf

I wanted to express my gratitude to our President, Ms Peggy O’Neal after Richmond won the 2017 flag after 37 years. A gift in honour of my grandmother Flora, I made and sent Peggy one of my scarves and have been delighted that she has both worn and enjoyed it.

My family are third generation Richmond supporters. My grandmother, Flora, a proud Tasmanian came over to Melbourne during the war, bringing with her the passion for the Richmond Football Club. It is this passion she instilled in both my mother and us, her grandchildren. As kids we experienced the greatness of the club in the 60’s, 70’s and the glory of 1980.

I began making my scarf for my family and friends in 2015. I have made at least 30 Richmond scarves. As I can only knit in a straight line, my design is very simple but elegant. Black with a yellow stripe. Made in Australian merino wool.

Thank you to Peggy, and all those involved in restoring the pride in the Yellow and Black. My scarf can be worn with both pride and appreciation, keeping you warm on a cold winter’s afternoon at the ‘G.
