My Noro Lion's Foot Stitch Flower Scarf

Hello my dear Blog friends,


Thanks for stopping by. Today I promise you lots of colour, so put your sunglasses on!!!


Very recently I made myself a quick scarf. It just happened!!!

One Monday I visited Lana, one of my favourite Wool shops in Antwerp and managed to find just one single ball of Noro Kureyon Sock yarn in a wonderful array of colours! I knew it was meant for me! It appears long discontinued, no chance to find anymore, unfortunately!

On Tuesday I started and by Saturday it was finished! I have been wearing it a lot since then!



My Noro Flower Scarf



This is my *nearly finished scarf, made from just a single 100g ball of yarn!

Noro Kureyon Sock yarn

Wound into a yarn cake - such amazing colours!


 
This is the first row of flowers

The scarf is made from four flower rows



*Nearly finished, because at the end I had about 20g left, from which I decided to make tassels! They ended up being about 25 cm long.



Ta-dah! My finished scarf






Thanks so much for your patience lately. I know this post was a bit overdue, but you might not know that I recently had to work hard for my Dutch exams which were only last week. For one of them I had to have read a book and then give a comprehensive written account and answer a lot of questions. The other exam was my oral exam which also needed preparation. I will have to wait a bit now before I get my results.

I will try and catch up now, thanks for all your support and last comments, much appreciated!

Feel free to leave me your comments!
Enjoy the nice weather!!!

  13. I've been admiring this scarf for a while. I don't know why I hadn't left a compliment here before now (probably got interrupted while staring at it such is life with children)
    I love the colours, pattern and everything about it. It looks very very good on you - perfectly matched to you in colouring, complexity and originality. Looking fabulous, Ingrid. :-)
