My new Obsession??December 20, 2009
Well I think i am finally going to knit a Noro striped scarf. After seeing all the blog hype about this scarf… i finally decided that not only is the scarf very pretty and not only will it keep my attention but I SIMPLY MUST HAVE A SCARF LIKE THAT.
So here is the plans so far. I have the yarn all 4 balls of silk garden colorway 239 (Hey I could use different colorways but I do not have an lys here and unfortunately Michael’s and joann’s does NOT stock Noro.) So how did I get Noro yarn you ask.. Someone sent me a donation of yarn ( I teach kids to knit or crochet whichever they choose and unfortunately I am reduced to asking for donations every once in a great while) I just happened to look in the box when it arrived at my house and I saw *gasp* Noro yarn. Now normally I would let the kids have any yarn they wanted but I will admit that when I saw the Noro yarn…*looks down in shame* I snatched it. Is that wrong? Now all I have to do is find an inexpensive but good quality yarn maybe something like an acrylic/wool blend that is self striping so that when the kids see my scarf and want to learn how to make it they can.
Now all I have to figure out is what size needles to use…
Added later: Well I thought it was my new obsession then I tried it out and it seemed on the thin side. i like my scarves kind of thick and warm..then I had a thought * which may or may not be a good thing* I could just design my own scarf!! so here it goes
Noro Obsession Scarf
3-4 skeins of Noro silk gardern or a worsted self striping yarn
size 8 (5.0 mm) double pointed needles.
Cast on 38 sts
Divide sts on the needles in this manner
needle 1: 12 sts
needle 2: 12 sts
needle 3: 14 sts
Join together without twisting the sts
Do a 1×1 rib for as long as you want the scarf to be
Row 1: *k1,p1 repeat from * around the needles
Continue the scarf until you run out of 1 ball of yarn and when you do add the new ball of yarn
Continue the 1×1 rib scarf until it is the length you want it to be
Bind off and weave in the ends
Wear and enjoy!
