The Noro striped scarf is a common motif written by many knitters over the years. We love the version of this scarf that Jared Flood described in detail in his “Notebook” at Brooklyn Tweed. It is also available as a free template on Ravelry and is perfect for beginners. I love this project because, by manually stripping Noro, he undresses! This leads to interesting and sometimes unexpected color variations.
With these simple scarf patterns, some of which are suitable even for beginners, go beyond Krausesatz. These scarves are great ways to try out new techniques such as lace and cable or to break into more difficult projects.
