I had some Noro Silk Garden in my stash and was planning to knit another one of those really popular Noro striped scarves, like I knit for Brad. But then I saw the pattern for this scarf while I was browsing around on Ravelry and decided to try this one instead.
This pattern is accomplished using double knit and it is my first project using this technique. the double knitting wasn't difficult, but it is a little bit tedious. I was ready to work on another project after knitting four skeins. I did end up with a shorter scarf, but I love the thickness the double knitting created. It was a fun scarf to knit and I liked putting in the little inset squares at random places in the scarf.
I'd like to knit this scarf again. I think it would be nice to use one variegated yarn and one solid color to make the squares stand out even more; or even two solid colored yarns. I'd consider trying a lighter weight yarn too; maybe a sock weight yarn.
