Yarn: Noro Iro, 75% Wool/25% Silk Super Bulky yarn

Needles: 6
 mm / US 10

Gauge: 3.5 sts and 5 rows per inch

Stitch Pattern: Alternating rows of stockinette and reverse stockinette stitch

Source: Inspired by this project from Ravelry.com (you may not be able to see this if you aren't on Ravelry)

Comments: The aforementioned ravelry project uses this pattern to make a great big cowl that is so big it can be wrapped around your head twice.  It looked lovely, but I'm now thinking this would look better just as a seed stitch scarf knit lengthwise.  The colour repeats should make long vertical stripes, which should be lovely in this colourway - the colours range from these blues and yellows, all the way through to dark brown and orange.  You will (maybe) note from the strands of yarn behind the swatch that this was knit in the round, since I was planning to knit the cowl in the round to save on seaming.  It also served as an example to my students of how to swatch in the round for projects that will be knit in the round.
