I’ve had this lone ball of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn sitting on my shelf for a couple of years. Every time I passed this ball, a twinge of guilt would hit for purchasing something that had no purpose or plan.
After knitting up a sweater, there were a several left over balls of blue when inspiration struck. Combining the two yarns with a basic chevron pattern created an interesting scarf that my daughter loves.
Gauge is 5 -5.5 stitches per inch on size 3 needles, although obtaining precise gauge isn’t critical to the project, and I’m a loose knitter.
C/O 47 stitches ( 3 repeats of 15 stitches plus 2 edge stitches)
Row 1 (RS): Using MC: k1 (edge) *k2tog, k5, YO, k1, YO, k5, SSK* repeat end k1 (edge)
Row 2 (WS): Using MC: k all stitches
Row 3 (RS): Using CC: k1 (edge) *k2tog, k5, YO, k1, YO, k5, SSK* repeat end k1 (edge)
Repeat these 4 rows until the scarf is as long as desired. Then repeat the first two rows for symmetry and bind off in MC.
I have an extra ball of Chroma sitting around that will have to be turned into a similar chevron scarf…
