noro silk garden scarf

I'm making headway on the noro multidirectional scarf. The yarn is silk garden # 88, and I think it's absolutely beautiful. At first I thought it was scratchy, but now I like the texture.

Short rows are just so clever! Things look a little weird while you're in the middle of a triangle, but it all straightens out in the end.

Hi! A friend of mine sent me over here to check out your multidirectional scarf because she knew I was making one out silk garden too. I love the shade you chose, it's perfect for fall. I may just have to make a second one in colors similar to yours ;-)

It gets a little softer after washing. Multidirectional knitting is fun! Have you seen the new free shawl pattern from Iris at I'd like to make that one soon. Oh, and thanks for commenting on my bedbugs scarf! :o)

Hi, I saw your link on SP 9. Gorgeous scarf- I love Noro!

Hi again Jodi!

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. The Noro I used was #206, the weird thing was I used two balls of the same color and same dye lot but only one of them had the red in it. I either got extra yarn in one ball or stiffed on the other I guess.
Yes, I think you're right about it looking blocky. I can't put my finger on it but for some reason it just didn't look finished until it had the fringe.
Thanks for the link to the other pattern, I had just come across it myself as well. I'm a little over-excited to start knitting all my stripy yarn in short rows just to see what they look like. I'm desperately trying to resist the urge!
