Stash Bustin Noro Scarf

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.

This project used one 100g ball of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn (CC) and 2- 50 g balls of a DK-weight blue yarn (MC).

Gauge is 5 -5.5 stitches per inch on size 3 needles, although obtaining precise gauge isn’t critical to the project.

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)

Row 4 (WS): Using CC: k all stitches

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.
