|Fall Swap Scarf|
started September 9, 2013
I couldn't resist the siren calls of the Noro from KathyB's Fall Swap, and once cast on, it has been hard to resist.
Jared Flood's "pattern" is a 1x1 rib (cast on 39 sts on size 7 needles) and knit two rows of the rib with each skein. On the second row of each color, slip the first and last stitches in the row as if to purl. Those slipped stitches create the nicest edge that will resist rolling.
I am kicking myself for not selecting two brighter skeins to complement the ones I got from KathyB because then the stripes would not be as subtle. Despite that one regret, I am in love with this scarf.
Fair warning: this scarf can be expensive as Noro Silk Garden can be nearly $12 per skein, and the pattern requires four skeins. I was fortunate to receive two skeins in the swap and purchased the other two skeins at 20% off.
