Silk Garden Scarf

 Several months ago a friend gave me a skein of Noro Silk Garden sock yarn. I loved the colorway and started a pair of socks, but as the socks progressed, it became clear that the texture of the yarn was not right for socks.

I found the Noro Wave Scarf pattern and was pleased how the yarn striped and created an elegant fabric. Since I had one skein of the yarn, I cast on 37 stitches on size 5 needles, and it blocked to nearly 7 inches wide. The sides curled making it necessary to block. If I made the scarf again, I would increase the side border to at least four stitches to eliminate the curl.

 This scarf is a gift for a special friend.

  2. Agreed. I was doing colorwork socks in Silk Garden, and they're waiting to be frogged. Love the presentation wrapping with the scarf back in the ball band. Lovely!

  8. The scarf is beautiful--a perfect use for Noro. Some people think of Noro as scratchy but every Noro scarf I have given as a gift has been worn and loved. You can't argue with success.
