My latest Christmas FO
This is my favorite way to knit the Noro stripey yarns. I do a gauge swatch and figure out my sts per inch (in this case about 3) and multiply by 60 for a 60" scarf. I cast-on with a softer yarn and do 2 ridges or so of garter stitch. Then I switch to the Noro of my choice and do k4, *k2tog, yo, repeat across from * to last 4 or 5 sts and then knit them. I then knit 3 rows and the next time across I k4, *yo, k2tog repeat across to last 4 or 5 sts and then knit those. I continue on ending the noro with the yo, k2tog row when I'm out of yarn (this usually involves tinking a row or two of knitting because I misjudged). Then I pick up the original yarn and knit 3 or 4 rows and bind off. The current yarn is knitpicks Andean Silk in pitch, Noro aurora in color 3. The needles are Addi turbo circs size 11, 32" length.
