Wisdom scarf

This is another scarf knitted in the Jared Flood way, in different colorways of yarn with slow color changes. The free pattern is here. Flood’s pattern calls for three colorways, in four skeins, of Noro Silk Garden. Knitted up that way, the scarfs are stunning. My three Silk Garden and one Kuroyon Noro knits are in the slide show below.

But knitting in Wisdom Yarns Poems decreases the impact on the pocket book quite remarkably. And all without any sacrifice in the beauty of the finished object. I usually cast on 45 for the Noro versions. This time I cast on 39 and ended up with a similarly sized, but somewhat longer scarf. Wisdom is 100% wool, but it’s is spun in a way that almost looks as if it has some mohair in it because there’s a bit of a fuzzy halo to the yarn.

Here’s the scarf before it was one:

 

And now another glimpse of the “after:”

  1. @hakucho…thanks much. Although the ball band says it’s a Wisdom Yarns the rootin’ tootin’ manufacturer is actually Universal Yarns. It’s the first time I’ve used it and I was pleased. Four skeins and only two unexpected knots…quite different from the experience I often have with Noro.

  2. I’ve made a couple of these scarves using Wisdom yarn and have been quite pleased with how they turned out. I don’t remember having any knots either. Your scarf looks great!
