This is one of a number of patterns called the Noro Striped Scarf. There are lots of incarnations of scarf knitting that call for a yarn with a long color repeat. The one I am using is by Jared Flood. In his version, he uses two colorways of Noro yarn, four balls, total. His scarf costs about $40 or so.
I had two balls of a very SHORT color repeat (Rustic Wool) and two balls of Vista in two shades of gray.
I don't know what size my needles are. In my upheaval, ALL of my gauge finders are lost. I vaguely remember putting them together one time, instead of running the risk of having to search through every project to find one. Now I have to search through every box to find ALL OF THEM.
|LOVE working with this. I think it is|
Classic Elite Vista ASH
When I run out of the lighter gray, I will be finishing with the darker one.
|Love this one, too. Probably|
it is the Beaver Grey. I have
always enjoyed natural, gray wool.
I have about 14 scarves in various stages all around the house. Today is a great day for knitting.
If you are entertaining the idea of a striped scarf but don't care for the alternating knit-purl stitches, try Susanne Pietzrak's Noro Scarf.
Entirely garter stitch with a clever little INC and DEC to make it come to life with a diagonal energy.
