Noro-Tastic!

Last week I finished a short scarf, crocheted with Lion Brand "Amazing", self-striping yarn. I saw Jenny King’s Noro Stole online and LOVED the pattern. I looked closely at the photo and figured out the pattern. It’s one row of dc’s, then one row of alternating 3 trc’s, 3 chains, beginning and ending with the 3 trc's. This pattern looks fantastic in striping yarn with long colorway runs. The "Amazing" yarn yardage for one skein is 147 yards. It made a nice, short scarf.I just finished blocking the same patterned scarf made from Noro Kureyon yarn. It's doubly amazing! Noro's colors always knock me out. The combinations are startling. I used about 2-1/2 skeins of different Noro colorways, about 250 yards. size "I" crochet hook.This is a perfect "gift" scarf....colorful with a simple, yet striking pattern.

Lovely, lovely work! I like that pattern.

Thanks for sharing a picture of the scarf in LB and Noro. I've been eyeballing the LB, but haven't ever bought any.

Meanwhile, I am making about TEN Noro scarves for Christmas (the Queen Anne's Lace scarf). I too am completely in love with the color changes in that yarn. It may not be the softest but it is definitely the most fascinating to work with.

Happy Thanksgiving!
