I was trying to figure out what to do with the few skeins of Noro Silk Garden I had lying around and came across this pattern on Ravelry.
I ended up doing my own thing with it...the pattern said to use two different colors of yarn and alternate every few rows, but I was too lazy. Cheesy

Here is my first attempt:

I started running out of yarn, so i had to use some leftover noro silk garden of a different colorway.  Still wound up being a bit too short for my liking, so I gifted it to a friend.

I wanted to make another one for myself, so I went on a search for some more Noro yarn.  The owner of my LYS suggested using a Crystal Palace yarn called "Mochi Plus" instead of using Noro (it's cheaper in price and holds together a little better).  Again, I didn't use two contrasting yarn colors because I liked the colorway of this particular yarn on its own.  

Here's a pic of it in action!


Too bad it's almost summer and a bit too warm to wear...

...or maybe I could wear it as a head band thingy? haha


The pattern was kind of boring...started off with several rows of 3x3 ribbing, then stockinette stitches for what seemed like FOREVER, knit in the round.  Finished off with the same number of rows of 3x3 ribbing, then binding off in rib stitch.  Easy peasy.  

Here's the free pattern on Ravelry
