FO Not Noro Striped Scarf

Details:
Pattern: Noro Striped Scarf by Jared Flood
Yarn: Rowan Tapestry, 2 balls each of colours SH 170 and SH 172
Size: 5" x 88"

I wasn't certain I'd like the stripes. Turns out I love the stripes! The colour is richer and prettier then I was able to photograph it in the bright sun today. I'm really pleased with the Tapestry.

The first stitch of each row is slipped purl wise with the yarn held in back. It made for a nice edge and incorporated the change of yarn every 2 rows beautifully.


The interest factor from each new colour combination makes this a fun and easy knit.

It's nice and long. I purchased 3 of each colourway so there will probably be a co-ordinating hat or wrist warmers since after 4 total the scarf measures 88". The extra balls would be perfect for Toast from Leslie ~ I'll make them with the dark browns and berry coloured ball to co-ordinate, not striped with both.

The yarn is soft, warm and has a beautiful halo, perfect for cold February outings. I wouldn't change anything if I knit this again. Actually, I definitely will knit this again using the Rowan Tapestry and try 2 new colourways. Love how this scarf turned out, it'll see a lot of wear.

The scarf looks fantastic, Renee! Aren't you so glad everyone encouraged you to keep going? Great yarn choices...worth the drive to Hamburg! LOL!

It's gorgeous - the colours are beautiful together! I love how subtle it is compared to the Noro versions, although there are lots of those that I like too. I think this is going to be my husband's birthday present this year, thanks for the inspiration!

What a totally gorgeous scarf! I know you don't think the richness came through in the pics but I thought how rich and elegant the colors looked immediately. The matching toast will make a smashing set! Lovely, lovely, lovely. Enjoy :)
