Oh, yes, the Noro striped scarf is indeed like a potato chip: no one can knit just one. I expect I’ll be knitting quite a few more of these. Soon.
Noro Silk Garden yarn, one skein in color number 201, one in 245.
US size-8 circular needle.
29 stitches per row. (Jared used 39 per row and 4 skeins of yarn, so I’m guessing he’s a tighter knitter than I am and he likes a denser fabric. Plus his wound up a bit longer and .5″ wider than mine.)
Finished size: 56.5″ long and 5″ wide. (That’s 143 cm x 12.5 cm, according to my tape measure.)
K1P1 rib, with first stitch on every row slipped purlwise (with yarn in front) and last stitch knit (not purled). The slipped first stitch and knit last stitch on each row create a neat, smooth edge and keep the scarf from stretching out ad infinitum.
It took me 3 evenings and a couple of lunchtimes to knit this, for a total of about 8 hours. (That’s a guess, folks. Don’t hold me to it. And, yes, I’ll try to keep better track of that when I do the next one.)
