Spring Surf Scarf


I have a love-hate relationship with Noro yarns. Love: the colors!! The long repeats of beautifully intense shades are to die for. Hate: the knots! I have been disappointed several times with knots tied in the middle of the skein connecting non-sequential colors. Boo!


This time, however, I was delighted to get a whole skein with ZERO knots!! Yipppeee! It's Silk Garden Sock Yarn in colorway #S87. It reminds me of a spring flower garden.


The Morning Surf Scarf design was simple to knit and shows off the yarn perfectly. I used a 36-stitch cast-on, and repeated the 12-row pattern until I ran out of yarn. After rinsing and blocking, the resulting scarf is approximately 8"X60". Total love!

beautiful scarf. I feel the same way about noro..I usually cut the knot off and felt or spit join the yarn in that spot.. it works great and no more little yarn ends sticking out here and there.. (^_^)

I've never knit with Noro, but I've heard others complain about the knots.

Your scarf is lovely.

Beautiful scarf. The pattern really shows off the colors! I haven't knit with Noro, but have used it for weaving and I love the color blends.

I'm still amazed at the gorgeousness that comes off of your needles and hooks!
