The Noro Slip Stitch Stripe Scarf

Designed by solmama November 2007

Do you love when people adorn their necks with the beautiful Noro Striped Scarf by Jared Flood, but the idea of doing 1×1 rib makes you shudder? Do you have a love affair with slip stitches or playing with color? Do you have Noro Matsuri, Tidiori or other similar yarn hanging around without a project in sight? Do you go gaga over any noro stripey yarn? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this is the scarf pattern for you :-D

    This is such a cool pattern!! I made the regular Noro striped scarf last year for a friend. I’ve queued this one up for myself!

    I’m interested in the knitted border pattern on the top of your blog page. It’s in tri-color: eggplant, green 3 row of ribbing (I think) and 4th row something else?

    Thanks for reading,

    I should’ve also asked what brand of yarn and color you knit the pattern stitch you use as the top of your blog border. 3-color eggplant/purple, green, tan.

    Thanks again,

    This is a great pattern! Just love the colors. I’m an editor for, and I took the liberty of linking to your blog from my roundup blog post of free scarf knitting patterns. You can check it out here. I also just published a collection of free scarf knitting patterns at our website if you are interested. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I picked up some Plymouth Yarns’ Gina, it’s looking great so far! The “original” pattern can be rather manly, but I love that this one sort of feminizes the pattern, it almost looks woven. Thanks so much for this!

  6. I’m new to knitting. Please, what does Cc and MC mean?

  7. Not sure what I am doing wrong, but my version of this scarf looks nothing like the photo. I am using Plymouth Gina, very close to Noro Kureyon. I went down one needle size from the #7 recommended. And I have been watching my tension, but it is still pretty lacy instead of woven looking. Any ideas?

      I think it all depends what you want the finished product to look like. You could be a really loose knitter, so a US size 5 or 6 might give you the fabric you are looking for. I am a tight crocheter, so I typically go up 2 hook sizes. The lacy version of this scarf can be pretty, too. The first time I made this pattern it was a little lacy.
      I hope you can find what works. Whatever you choose, I am sure it will be beautiful :-)

  8. Can this be made without changing yarns? Any idea of the effect?

    So absolutely pretty! Looks very warm and comfy, too. Is it possible to increase the size to make a stole or wrap?

    • solmama

      Absolutely. Cast on as many stitches as you would like, as long as the number is a multiple of 3. I would love to see it when you are finished!
