Noro Striped Scarf 2
Completed: November 2007
Pattern: 1x1 rib, as per Jared Flood's tutorial
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden #203 greens/blues/grays (45% silk, 45% kid mohair, 10% lamb's wool), 1 x 50g balls (100m each); Queensladn Collection Kathmandu Aran #156 (85% merino wool 10% silk, 5% cashmere), 1-1/2 x 50g balls (100m each)
Notes: I cast on fewer stitches for this than for the first one I made--25 instead of 35, and I was able to get a reasonable-sized scarf-- 5" x54"--with just 2 balls, 1 of each yarn. I forgot to work the slipped stitch edging, so the edges are not as nice on this one, but I still like it just fine! It's pretty conservative, as far as scarves from self-striping yarns go, which suits my taste and the receipient's. I like having the the repeating stripe from the dark aquamarine Kathmandu Aran to ground the color changes of the Noro.
