Silk Garden Scarf

Striped Silk Garden Scarf

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!

  1. Hi,
    I would like to know which colors of the Noro Silk Garden you used to knit this scarf…it is really gorgeous.
    Thanks,

  2. Hi Stephanie,

    For the scarf we used two balls each of Silk Garden in color 84 and color 275.

  3. I’m excited to try this scarf but I’m not sure what you mean by “don’t cut the yarn that’s not in use, just carry it up the side” Can you explain to me how to do that?

  4. Hi Jodie,

    You’ll cast on with Color A and work 2 rows. Then you’ll join Color B and work two rows. At the end of that second row of Color B, you’ll drop Color B, pick up Color A and work two rows. So instead of cutting and re-joining, you just knit with one color at a time and leave the other one until you get back to it.

    Hope that helps!

  5. Hello,
    Just wondering what size needles to use for this scarf?
    Thanks,
    Jen

  6. We used a size 8.

  7. I made this scarf and the pattern was identical except at the second row of each color you slip the first and last stitch purlwise. It makes a beautiful edge on this scarf. I also noticed people are perplexed by this scarf. Especially other knitters. I also use one casacde 220 and two silk gardens, so you have solid with color changing stripes.

  8. I made the Silk Garden Scarf a few months ago and it is beautiful. It was very easy to do, and very enjoyable changing yarns. I plan on making a few more for gifts.

  9. Question….so do you just leave those short “loops” along the side that result from changing colors but not cutting the ends?
    Thanks! Can’t wait to try this pattern and yarn!

  10. Yes, you just carry the yarn not in use along the side.

  11. What size knitting needles?
