FO: Noro Garter Stitch Scarf
Noro garter stitch scarf, horizontally knit. I didn't like how the colorway played out when I just cast on about 20st. You might know how crazy Noro yarn can become when let on the loose! So I cast on 208 st and knit til I ran out of yarn.

I wrote out full notes for several types of interesting garter stitch scarves over in my Ravelry projects folder, free for anyone to read and/or copy. The point of these garter stitch scarves using various types of yarn, different needle sizes, etc. was to illustrate the pretty scarves you can get with just the knit stitch aka 'garter stitch' for a Knitting 101 class I teach to newbies.

http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtL...r-knitting-101

I knit this particular scarf using two skeins of Noro Kureyon. I softened it a lot using the two-step full soak blocking process.

Oh that came out beautiful! I love them knit lengthwise when you knit garter stitch stripes! Great mindless work!

I like the long rows with the Noro yarn and the thin strips of color that you have in this scarf. Lovely combination of colors. Thanks very much for the Scarves 101 notes, too.

It turned out gorgeous! The color striping and the texture make this look like a strip of tightly woven carpet. I don't mean that in a bad way. I just mean that it looks like something you would find in a commercially manufactured item. In other words, very professionally done!

I like the idea of knitting a scarf lengthwise. I guess that takes a little more planning (i.e. guage, LOL!) than just starting out to knit a scarf vertically. Anyway, the horizontal stripes are great! Very nice effect.

Long they were for sure, but never boring. It's always exciting to knit with Noro, watching the colors evolve!

Artlady, I just love this scarf... simple but beautiful... love the way your knitting lays so nice and flat like that too.
I guess I better practice getting my tension the same all the way thru if I ever hope to knit a wonderfully as you do.
