I restarted the scarf out of Noro Kureyon #153. I'm much happier with it this time!
I cast on 34 stitches on 5 mm needles, and I'm knitting a simple k1p1 rib, alternating two rows from one ball and two rows from another ball. This time, I also payed some attention to where I started each ball, aiming for a little more contrast between the stripes. I think I succeeded! I hope to finish it tonight, so I can give it a bath (which will soften it up tremendously) and it will be dry tomorrow morning.
This is another picture of the Kureyon scarf I made last year, in # 124.
The colors in this one are much more similar than the colorway I'm using now. I like them both.

I LOVE the #124! For these scarves you used two skeins of the same colorway, and simply made sure to join the second ball at a different point in the color sequence, right? That's so clever.

Very nice choice of models and colors!

Both scarfs are great. Isn't it amazing which effects you can achieve in such an easy way?

Lovely! I have three balls of Kureyon waiting to be knit up into a scarf and I might just use this striping pattern. Very nice!

Lovely scarves! Love the colours! May I ask what's the length of the scarf after you wash them? Thanks!
