Noro Kureyon Scarf

Still in a slump and true to form, now that it's March, I made a wool scarf. It goes with my "Marlon Perkins" vest (that's what my husband calls it anyway).

3 skeins Noro Kureyon 178 that I got off of DeStash a while ago.
Hook size K-my standard "Snuggly" pattern with fringe.
The colors in the picture seem so much brighter than the actual color (in the house anyway). The linked yarn up above is more of the color. First time using Noro and I plan to use the Noro Bron sent to make a fulled bag. This scarf was because I wasn't nuts about the color for a bag and didn't know what to do with it. I love how the striping came out though and the amazing color. I liked the yarn, just not sure about next to skin wear, but gorgeous coloring.

The color in that yarn is absolutely gorgeous.
Just think...the more out of season items you make, the more gifts you'll have for next winter. That's the way I'm trying to look at it.

I'm always amazed by the Kureyon stuff. I really have to try it some day.

The scarf looks fabulous! I printed the pattern the first time you posted it, but stil haven't gotten around to making one.

Simply Gorgeous! I agree, if you don't think you'll wear it, stick it in the Gift Box (we all have one of those right? ;) lol)

I think that's the same color I made a bag I plan to felt. Your pattern, just enlarged. It was rough on the hands when I worked it, but I have heard it softens right up when it's washed or felted. Try a bit of hair conditioner in cool water. I know you use the good stuff because of Elena's thick lovely hair, so just a dab of that should do the trick.

Beautiful yarn, love the colors of the stripes! Very nice!

It's really pretty! Noro is sometimes not all that soft though, which is too bad. I made my mom a scarf out of Noro Blossom, and was worried because it was a bit rough but she wears it over her coat so it worked out well.

So is this your "Wild Kingdom" scarf? (singing, Mutual of Omaha is people, you can count on when the going's rough......) Gosh I feel old.

Anyway, your scarf is really lovely and I too would like to know how you made it.
