Lately, I have Holiday knitting on my mind. I know it’s August, but there’s no harm in getting a head start, right?
This striped Silk Garden Scarf is a great go-to gift for any occasion. The pattern is unbelievably simple: Grab 4 skeins of Noro Silk Garden yarn in two different colorways, cast on 39 stitches, and work a k1, p1 rib. Alternate colorways every two rows (don’t cut the yarn that’s not in use, just carry it up the side). Work until the scarf is your desired length, or until you run out of yarn!
I can’t say enough good things about Noro Silk Garden yarn. Of course the colors are beautiful, and the yarn feels soft against the skin. The silk adds a rustic look to the yarn, which looks great with any winter coat, or even a pair of jeans! Each ball offers a large range of colors so you don’t have to worry about matching them up to your hat and gloves. Or you could just make a hat and pair of gloves to match!
Scarves like this are sure to be a crowd pleaser. I plan on knitting up two or three before the Holiday season is upon us. And now that Silk Garden Sock yarn is available, I can make a lighter version of the scarf. It’s not just for socks, you know!
