Pattern: Noro Striped Scarf by Jared Flood
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden
Needles: US 7
My great-grandmother will be 91 tomorrow. For her 90th, I promised her a knitted item of her choice. She chose a neutral scarf and here it is (a little late)! I've been wanting to make a Noro Striped Scarf for a couple months. I hate Noro, but had a skein of Silk Garden in tans because I accidentally ordered it instead of Sock for my Rudens, so I stuck with it. I picked a pretty blue-green to go with it and I think it turned out beautifully!
I made couple of changes. I cast-on 31 sts instead of 39 and only used 2 skeins instead of 4. It was really a lot of fun to work on, despite it being Noro and 1x1 ribbing! It took me no time at all, mostly because the suspense of the color-changes was amazing. :) I might have to make a few more, but I doubt it will be with Noro again. :P
