Man's Scarf in Garter Stitch
Used up the left over Noro I used to knit my sister's vest.

42 sts, 4mm needles, garter stitch.

Simple.

For my best friend Gary, who lives in Brisbane. Flying there tomorrow for the week.

Very good looking scarf and wonderful colors. I love the way the colors play against each other. What a great gift! Enjoy the trip and visit.

I really like that, David. I bet Gary does too!

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

I love Noro with garter stitch! Your scarf is wonderful!

If there is a 'next time'...try something a little different for a Noro garter stitch scarf! Cast on the widthways...and knit up about 4-6"...however far you can get!

Here is my Noro Kureyon scarf, knit it up this past year for an example of the variations you can create for garter stitch scarves for the Knitting 101 class I was teaching.





The swaths of color don't become so wide when you're knitting Noro widthwise. Well, not that there's anything wrong with wide swaths of color. I just wanted to show something different for garter stitch and a self-striping yarn.

What is the length on that scarf?
